Lady with Her Baby

This image is from an Art in America magazine (February 2006) that I found in a discard pile at my studio building. I'd never seen this artist's work before and have not found much on-line about her. I love this painting. It brings to mind my little book of baby dreams. I'll have to see if I can find a book about her in the library.

What does the little baby have in its hand? perfume? grenade?

ha ha - yeah, a little grenade...

i don't know - looks like a little bottle of sorts, like it came off the dressertop? (windowsill? frame?) at the bottom of the picture...
