Mother's Day Rest...

Custom Pen and Ink House Portrait
Beth S. Macre © 2011

I guess I could have taken my husband up on the offer to go to J'town and go out to eat, but honestly, I just wanted to spend my Mother's day doing nothing. Well, nothing except relax at home.  So that is what I'm doing.  I felt like I just needed some time to relax! I've spent the last several weeks rushing around trying to get things done for work and I actually feel like I can rest today without feeling guilty about not working on something on my 'To Do list'.

Last year on Mother's Day, we were at the Dunwoody Art Festival, in Georgia.  We had a wonderful time and I would love to be there this weekend too, but it just didn't work out for this year.  It's probably a good thing that it didn't work out, because I have been working, it feels like, non-stop, on commissions, as well as school projects.

One of my latest pen and ink portraits is posted here.  It is a house that is going to be moved or torn down to make room for a new house, so the customer wanted it to be preserved in a drawing.  I completed another pen and ink portrait, just yesterday, that I will post later.  It was a commissioned piece for Mother's Day, so I will wait a bit.
Hope you are having a wonderful Mother's Day, doing what you want to the most!
Have a great weekend!


  1. It's a wonderful old home. Makes me wonder who once lived there and what mother raised her children there. Nice work.

  2. Hi Faye,
    I wondered the same thing about this old house. I'm sure it had many children running through it over the years!
    I just found your response and appreciate your comment.


I love hearing from you! Thanks for stopping by!
