Happy Birthday, Mrs Passes!

Today is the birthday of one of my favourite ladies in the world, and here's the card I drew for her.

The Mother Figure

I named this piece "The Mother Figure". It's such a simple drawing that I'm almost ashamed to give it a name, yet somehow the simplicity is what's beautiful about it.

Closeup of "mother"

Perhaps this piece was inspired spiritually; I just felt it was right to leave it simple, unlike my usual complicated style.
Closeup of "girl"
I don't remember ever wearing red ribbons in my hair, but I centainly like them on my little girl. Viking Man asked me why the girl is blond, if it's supposed to represent me. I argued it was not, but on closer inspection...maybe it is. Maybe I've always fancied myself blond :P

I love the simple way I did the shadows.
It's good to be in love with my own art.. there is no other way an artist should be.

Happy Birthday, Mother of Passes!
