  1. neat range of depictions. really love that first watercolor. :)

  2. Wonderful grouping.. and lovely to see Mother Earth in there. I hope you had a lovely Mother's Day.

  3. great pictures. especially the last. It's what I was thinking yesterday as I planted an azalea.

  4. What a great way to honor mothers everywhere. Migrant Mother by Dorthea Lange is one of my all time favorite photos.

  5. Hey y'all. This was a fun little mother's day project. How many different mothers could I think of? I know I forgot quite a few. (mother ship? mother lode?)

    Hilary, thanks. I had a very nice mother's day, and managed to speak to all 3 kids on the phone, plus my own mother (who is about to turn 91)

    JarieLyn: Dorothea Lange's photo is my favorite too. So powerful, and an iconic image from US history.
