Mixed Media Monday - Mothers

I know one of my favorite things each morning is just enjoying the start of a whole new day with our son Cole...so for this theme I did a little mixed media with an illustration from one of my Picture books....This picture says it all...I love chatting over a nice warm latte....as we plan out the fun day ahead....So when I saw the theme this week over at Mixed Media Monday....I thought this piece would be just right...a Mother with her son....starting the day...

Happy Mother's Day week to everyone!!!
Hugs
Diana

This is a really sweet illo Diana. It can be a rare thing for moms to find some time in the morning to hang out with their kids, so Cole's a lucky guy. Happy Mother's day to you in the meantime!
