A virgin a day/ Friday Haiku

A mother's love
Feels so soft, so strong.
No fear as she lifts me up.

This painting was in my mother's bedroom and I always loved it. It is a painting on porcelain.
The artist is "Morelli" . I cannot find any info on the artist.

Oh what a gorgeous painting. I love it - how Mary is swept up with her baby. So beautiful.

Very beautiful and stunning portrait. My mother loved Mary and had many statues around her room. I have followed with paintings and likenesses I have collected. very nice.

It's so evocative..and beautifully observed...I do love porcelain anyway, but when you see it painted like this...ahh bliss.

This might be a work by Domenico Morelli but I couldn't find confirmation. She is beautiful - so full of ecstatic joy.

wow Peggy. How beautiful.
The whole painting just reeks of LOVE.
Between mother and child.
And the artist and his subject.

The only Francesco Morelli I knew of was French, 17th century, I think, but this doesn't look like his work. I do love this, however. So very feminine and filled with joy.
