mommies/carriers/carrier mommies

Many times when I do these postcards, I start off with circles. Watercolor is lots of fun when your brain is relaxed and you’re absent-mindedly painting colored shapes. When the circles are finally painted on and dry, either I get inspired immediately or not. With this one I didn’t get the inspiration until I started drawing the figure on the left and realized that to draw the rest of her body she’d have to be straddling the circle (at this point, ball). Then I had her arms precariously holding onto the balls on either side of her. Here I noticed the proximity of the ball above her to her head. I thought: how bizarre this pose is. It somehow reminds me of myself and my efficiency in handling my groceries among many other things at once, making me a human coat rack.
