Behind the Art: My First Wish

My First Wish art print

This little drawing was created many years ago when my son was still a baby. The inspiration came from a book that I would read to him called You Are My I Love You by Maryann K. Cusimano. There is one line in the book that I absolutely love that says: "I am your dandelion, you are my first wish" 

I love the book for all of it's beautiful, yet simple, ideas of expressing your love to your child, but also explaining the relationship between parent and child in such deep phrases. Even as I'm writing this, there are echoes of the lines in my head. I love how a book can sit with you like that.
