A young boy said to his mother, ‘How old were you when I was born?’ His mother replied, ’23.’ ‘Wow, that’s a lot of time we missed spending together.’
My mother was 40 when I was born. I missed 40 years spending together with her.
I had the small photo of my Mum which started fading away & I was determined to do her justice before I lose that photo completely. I have tried to draw that portrait 4 times. My first attempt was when I was 10. The last drawing of that photo was done with pencils and crayons when I was 23. The original photo almost faded away now.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful Mothers I know, to all the beautiful Mothers I knew and will get to know in my life!
That is my first attempt to draw my Mother from that little photo. I was 10
That is my last attempt to draw her. I was 23
