We’ve all heard it. The speech. The one about being careful, being good, and remembering all the important things we’ve been taught. Off to the sleepover or summer camp.. or maybe college or that first big job. Finally, the speech is summed up with a reminder of how much we’re loved. I painted this mama bird talking to her babies to sell in my shop and couldn’t help but imagine she was giving them their pre-flight speech. So the title above the top of the painting is none other than “…and most of all, I love you.” Because if you don’t hold on to anything else they say, at least hold on to that.
