...to be a father ... by floriaiglenoir ...to be a father ... by floriaiglenoir
...to be a father-more than one moment...
This phrase can be interpretated in two ways...
by the first way I mean,that is a very big moment,maybe the highest one in a man's life,to become father.the french title initially was therefore "Apotheose"...
The second meaning of this phrase is,that is not just"one moment,one day,one month,that a man has to feel like a father,but -a lifetime...
This is an aquarellpainting,and I used also aquarellpencils...

This reminds me of the very first time my son at birth grabbed my finger. Then I realised it was a very small hand with a big grip on my life - Beautiful moment captured to perfection ;-)

...again,please to see,that this one evoked You a certainly unforgettable moment:iconlovegoesboom:...the instant of giving birth to her baby,is particularily intense for a mother(but she has carried it for several months),must be phenomenal for a father,as ,he only "really"concretes this fabulous event,when he can see and touch the child...:iconmyheartplz:

From the thumbnail, it looks like the father has a black tanktop on.

This is really amazing. The painting is lifelike and very emotional.

Wow! I've looked over some of your artwork and it's astonishing! Truly gorgeous. :)
There's so much emotion in this artwork! I adore it ^^
I want to be able to create amazing art like this someday, but for now, I'm still sticking to cartoons and stories.

...:bow:thank you deeply for such encouraging words,my dear.I am indeed mostly "emotional artist".
I watched your gallery,and I think it is lovely what you are doing,different style,but very promising,if you continue working and improving .When I had "your age"I only "pencil drew",and during many years,had to find out,"who"I was,and "what"kind of traditional style,fitted,or corresponded me the best,and I still have a long way to improve...:iconlovenodplz:continue,please!:iconnewglomp:

It certainly does, when I think of my husband with the children when they were small .... it was a wonderful sight to behold. Even now, seeing my husband with our daughter, she's 23 now and he still treats her like a small child :iconhuggleplz:

...I wish you to be:)and the very best!Yes,it has a deep meaning,indeed.It's not just a word,a moment,it's a big proudness,responsability to protect and love your child,to teach him(or her)what is important and necessary,to give him,all you are able to give,and at the same time,give him the right,to have his own personnality,his own choices.Children are like little birds,you have to take care,to raise "up their wings",to show them ,how to fly,but one day,open the door of the "protecting cage"and let them fly away...Maybe for a man,its more "abstract"to become a father,until the moment,he is holding his baby in his arms,the day of birth.But than again,depends of the person.A father is as important than a mother for a child...I never had the chance of having a father,and I will have this missing untile the end of my life,I suppose!

You are the talented one here, I can tell you that right now! The way you color the light and the shadows on their bodies are magnificent!! All those people who have a painting of yours on their wall are truly lucky!
It's always so nice to see when I have a message of deviations, and it turn out to be one of yours.
