Happy Mother's Day!

A break from the usual routine of my blog - to say Happy Mother's Day in pictures. :)


As a mother myself, 'motherhood' often comes out in my art...

I long to put the experience of fifty years at once into your young lives,

to give you at once the key of that treasure chamber

every gem of which has cost me tears and struggles and prayers,

but you must work for these inward treasures yourself.

--Harriet Beecher Stowe


To all you superwomen in the "Mother Club" with me - Enjoy the day. You are amazing!
