  1. I just love that breastfeeding mother, doesnt have her singlet strap down… her arm is entirely out of it by the looks… [whole]breast feeding.. xx Magical. hope the artist got and gets much continued healing from the messages and people who sit with the women and children she created.

    • I never noticed that before. I’m going to Toronto in September so will be sure to go and see this and get my own pic taken with the oxytocin women!
