I am a big fan of kid's art-- and find it to be
better than my own so expressive, truthful, lively and compelling. As we near the day I hopefully will get to spend in bed eating bon bons MOTHER'S DAY, many children are creating portraits like these...Here, a happy mom is seen wearing a "Best Mom" brooch.
As you can see, Mom is pretty and happy in most pictures. Like this one, which proves that even if Mom applies makeup like Tammy Faye Baker, she's still a beauty in the eyes of her child.
Some kids like to paint a happy picture of themselves WITH their Mom:
others like to immortalize the words of wisdom imparted by their mom in a visual statement -- an homage to the Tao of Mom
I am not going to enter a Mother of the Year competition against that one anytime soon.
And then there is My Daughter, Banana. Who recently created this portrait of her mom...
and made sure my glass was half full. Luckily, my eyes are still open and I haven't passed out face down in my dinner..... yet.
