My kids have a natural affinity for art, especially since my husband is an artist. One of my favorite activities is to sit down with my kids and create art —- we have made flowers inspired by this book, and cutouts inspired by Matisse. When drawing, one of their favorites subjects is me. I get a laugh out of how they envision me — lots of eyelashes. Above is a drawing by my daughter Zoe a few years ago. And here are a couple more recent ones, both reflect their own individual personalities.
Happy Mother’s Day…. Rebecca
PS…. I also love this posting in The New York Times, of contemporary artist’s portrayals of their children.
