Quotidian # 22 Baby Launcher

Okay, this is an image that I am titling "Baby Launcher".  It is an 8 x 12" oil on masonite of my friend's daughter and grand-daughter.  They came to visit in my little walled courtyard last Fall; and as it was a nice day the baby took off her clothes and proceeded to play with the hose.  Suddenly the strong, capable mother swept the baby up onto her shoulder to give her a glimpse of the street and the outside world.
In that instant I realized that all women are "Baby Launchers"...from conception to adulthood.
