Illustration Sunday......"pure joy"

I wanted to share what I have been working on. This is drawn out onto tracing paper so I can transfer the image to a nice watercolor paper and then paint it for next week.
I have been playing around with this idea for a few years but never really work it into a complete illustration. This was inspired by the joy I felt with the birth of my second child.
I am really hoping this painting turns out. If it does I was thinking It would make a sweet card for an expectant mom or any mama really so I would possibly get them printed into cards. We will see, I am getting a little ahead of myself. It is good to be back on track with my Illustration Sundays after a few weeks missed due to illness and Birthdays.
Thanks for stopping by!
