I told my kids Mother's Day is the one day a year we are appreciated. But, seriously sometimes it can feel like that.
I wanted to create something graphically for mothers this weekend.
When I think of motherhood I think of babies naturally. That moment when you meet your tiny baby and the only thing there is to do is love and kiss on them (and feed them and change them ect) This stage goes by all too quickly.
This next piece I asked my husband to sketch me a mom and her daughter, I wanted just their backs and originally I had thought of like a beach scene, with long flowing dresses, but once I saw his sketch I thought it just looked like a mom and her daughter at the Kentucky derby. It turned out kind of perfect because my mother loves horses and the derby. My parents always love going and so I knew I wanted to incorporate a photograph. I even like it in b&w.
To all you mothers out there, happy Mother's Day!
