On this Mother’s Day, I’d like to share some of my artwork that depict mothers. The domestic scene above is an illustration from Mary Had a Little Lamb. And the one below shows the kitchen in my book, In the Heart.
This detail from my Self Portrait: A Personal History of Fashion, covers the years when my children were very young and physically attached to me.
I made this “Old Mother Hubbard” ornament for the Family Trees Exhibit in Concord, MA.
And finally, here’s The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe, from my book Pocketful of Posies which peels away the sugar coating of motherhood.
What beautiful tributes to motherhood. I hope you are having a pleasant day! We’re heading to Encnitas to have lunch with our son.
Happy Mother’s Day Salley!
