The first love: mother and child paintings, a tribute to mothers

I believe that a mother’s love is the first love that we have all experienced. Her love, no matter how different from what we see in movies or read in books or witness across the street, is the most unconditional kind. Strong, faithful and not even death can come between.

So in honor of these great women, our mothers, and their even greater love for us, I have chosen beautiful images, works of art, to celebrate this divine ldivine bond between mother and child to remind us all that no individual who walked this earth passed unloved. And to all the mothers who will pay this hub a visit, I am proud to tell you that I have one as remarkable as you in my house who still refuses to believe and accept that I am all grown up. I hope you all enjoy this little tribute. And oh, Happy Mother’s Day!
