This is the greatest piece of art I have yet to find on DeviantArt. I left the tab open for days before writing this, and I found myself pondering it when I finally realized why this stood out so much to me. It struck me that the common threads for this were nourishment and providing, but with a definite element of concealment with both the bag and her arms that implies to me that often, people don't realize how much she does to provide for her family, but that she is willing to provide for them however she needs to. The vegetables partially covered by the bag, the model's breasts partially obscured by her arms. Something very maternal about this whole image, in a way that transcends the stigma found in western society towards motherhood as something more than a pure utility and instead gives it a feel of purpose and love. I have no idea what she's thinking, and her face does not betray her thoughts. There is a strength in her expression. A thoughtful mind making a decision.

The colors are wonderful in this, and I love how the only significant contrast are her eyes and the vegetables. Thanks for posting this, and I look forward to seeing more of your work!
