Barbara Muir © 2015Mother's Day in New York City is a big deal. I feel
sorry for New Yorkers this year, they couldn't take
their mothers out for dinner, or swamp them with
flowers, or take them to every wonderful museum
and theatre production.
This drawing is of a woman we saw when we went
to visit The Cloisters Museum in NYC, -- a
fabulous place. But when we left the museum we
realized that there were no taxis -- so we walked down
a hill to try and get one, because we were a long way
from our hotel on Times Square.
And we met a couple with a beautiful baby. They let
me take their pictures, and this is the mother. I wanted
to draw the baby, and I did. But I realized looking at
my photos later that the mother was very beautiful, and
loved her baby so much. She seems perfect tonight for
Have a loving what you do day.
