“Gilbert put his arm about them.
'Oh, you mothers!' he said. 'You mothers!
God knew what He was about when He made you.”
~ L. M. Montgomery, Anne's House of Dreams
I have had a touch of the flu lately and have been busy trying to cope with work and the general busy-ness of life. Still - I managed to finish an extra special project! I have been taking commissions recently for 'about me' collages inspired by the one I did about myself and all of the things I love. My Mum has looked at each one I have finished and exclaimed at how beautiful it was and then, with a sad face, helped me mail it far away. Finally I told her it was her turn and asked her for a list of things she wanted in her own personal about me collage! She gave me a list (more complex, specific, and labor intensive than every other list I have been given - but rightly so!) and I went to work. The main difference between my Mummy's collage and every other one I have done including mine is that she requested her own personal Marie Antoinette. I looooooove drawing anything marie antoinette-esque including shoes, gowns, carriages, etc. and drawing Marie Antoinette herself is the best of all! ---but also a bit tricky. All of that hair! Anyway, here is the finished project which my Mummy loves and has been insisting for a few days now that I share with everyone! Enjoy the pictures of this 'About My Mummy' collage...
