I’m happy to report the breastfeeding Madonna and Child has been shared on a couple of wonderful breastfeeding support organizations’ Facebook feeds. I hoped that the idea of the Raven celebrating and supporting courageous mamas would spread like wild fire, with the ultimate hope to #normalizebreastfeeding in our community and the U.S. as a whole.
Additionally, I was paid a great compliment by a friend of a friend, Melissa Smith, who had seen the painting via social media. She came to town for a kayaking excursion and then patronized the Raven to see the painting in person. She then snapped a photo of her feeding her beautiful son with it in the background.
