Sunday Sketches - A Tribute to Super Mom

This is a tribute to all of the Super Moms
(and dads, you know who you are) out there
who have ALMOST made it through the summer,
entertaining the little people in our lives.
So, I am sure you have had your share of
 Monopoly, arts and crafts, tennis, soccer, museums, beaches, pools,
musicals, day trips, zoos...camping, kayaking, movies, sleepovers...and more, right?
So, With Starbucks in hand I salute YOU!
Great Job!
I love my girls more than anything else in the whole world,
we've had a great summer, but now I am ready for a little camp of my own...
maybe a weekend here, or here...no plans, no ideas, no agendas just ME.


This drawing was actually inspired by my friend, Sophia, who hosts Sunday Sketches, here.
She's pretty super, herself!
Please visit her at The Blue Chair Diary for some great sketches and wonderful artists...
won't you join us this week?

Heather, this is a fun sketch and will look terrific in color. A great one for all the mom's who are getting kids ready to start school. You illustrations are so good it makes me wish I was an author of children's books so you could illustrate them.

Debbie said...

I agree with Marlene! Your sketches are always so well drawn and show such wonderful detail. Thank you for your kind words on my blog, and your birthday wishes.

hahaha Incredibly Cute. Now you have to draw one with an "SS" for "Super Sophia" surrounded by art supplies, microrphones (LOVE to sing), a puppy, hot cuppas, tea cakes....LOL...oh yeah...I have brunette hair! :D CHUCKLING big time here.

Hope you do get a chance for a private getaway all on your own for some R & R. Kudos to you for being such a great mom! :)

Mom powers activate!! I imagine myself in a cape especially when I am tired. I suppose you never get over the fantasy of a super hero... Funny, considering I've become one... at least in my head.
