Figurative Painting, Child, Hands "TOO MANY TOO SOON" by Contemporary Realism Artist Carol A. McIntyre

A visual artist's voice is rarely heard in words. Inspired by history, I pursued my dream of creating a large body of artwork commemorating the women of the 1800's. This memoir is an intimate glimpse into my artistic life, creative decision making, the struggles and triumphs, and the lessons learned while painting my passion.

Children were usually considered an asset on the plains & prairies, but many women wrote of their struggle and need for some form of birth control. Having too many children was a burden, life threatening, and many families suffered the consequences. Women were responsible for the care, moral upbringing and schooling of the children, as well as teaching basic labor skills for tending the animals, hauling water, doing the laundry, etc.
