Self portrait with baby Iris

A week ago, my school brought in so many flowers to decorate our front lawn as part of the graduation prop for our students during commencement. So I took a chance to take several family photos. Tone took this one of me and Iris, which later inspired me to do a postcard size mixed media (color pencils and gouache). I know I did not nail the likeness but I guess I am so happy to get to be a mom and Baby Iris came out fine. Once the substitute doctor told me during my pregnancy that the fetus was too small than normal. That had freaked me out until Iris came out perfect and grow up to be a cutie.
