The first image is a photo of a real human baby just born. It is one of my favorites and I have permission to use it [from member of my family that photographed it].
The second image is my photo of a painting I painted in oils some time ago, to depict a tired mother napping with her baby on her lap. I began trying to learn to paint babies and mothers in about year 2006. I have always admired the Mary Cassatt paintings of mothers and babies. Though I am not as good an artist as Mary Cassatt [or Rembrandt, or Reubens, or Michelango,or Renoir, or the Flemish "old Masters"] I keep trying by sketching frequently to improve my skills.
This is a PROLIFE blog. Of course, it is also an eternal life blog as well. The mission of it is to teach the gospel and hopefully, persuade some people to turn from the sin of killing their offspring and toward GOD's plan for salvation. Remember, the words of JESUS who said, "even so, it is not the will of your FATHER [GOD , in heaven] that one of these little ones should perish." Matthew 18:14 KJB.

I also own the name Tapestry of LIFE as it was coined by me in year 2002 when I lived in Colorado and was a TV producer for the public TV station there, and had to create my own show for the prolife cause. I registered it in the state of Colorado ; but then I moved to Missouri and continued it here. I meant it to mean that the many threads of my life [Registered Nurse, artist in oils, writer, blogger, public speaker [then], hostess for public TV; TV producer, mother, ] could be woven together by GOD into a beautiful tapestry similar to the ones I saw in Europe when I visited there in the 1990s; for the purpose / mission of promoting human life .
