Farmer Phoebe at Rest

reed pen and inks on hotpress watercolour paper, 11″ x 14″, 2011

It has been said that the mother-daughter relationship is the most profoundly complicated of all relationships. What I know for sure is that it is exhilirating, beautiful and challenging beyond belief. What I also know for sure is that I am so proud of both my daughters.. I also like them and admire them…and I love them with a depth I can’t comprehend even after a quarter of a century (give or take a year depending on which daughter).

This little drawing was done in about an hour with my homemade reed pens and permanent inks the afternoon before Phoebe left for South America. It is the first drawing/painting completed in this new year.

And to anyone and everyone who reads this: I wish you peace, happiness, health and love in this new year.
