This is a watercolor image that I painted and designed for my 2014 Mother’s Day Card. I have made a point of creating my own Mother’s Day cards to send to my female friends and family for years, in honor of my own mother, who died when I was 8. Often I’ve featured my son or nieces and nephews, as I have easy access to their photos, and use whatever media their images inspired. This little girl I don’t know, but found the photo on online while I was looking for images for another project. Her expression of freedom and joy behind the white plastic sunglasses brought back some good childhood memories.
