Imperfect Mama- A Mother's Day Tribute

Hi just was fooling around in my studio today. Taking a quiet meditative break and celebrating in my own way the life of my mother Eleanor Simmons Burton who transitioned in April of 1998. I put together the makings of another mixed media art doll on canvas to be part of a collection I am putting together for a fall show. This one is called "Imperfect Mama". It celebrates that while mothers including mine work for the best of for their children, we often place them on pedal stools expecting them to be perfect in every way. I learned as an adult that this is not always so.

Note the stitching on this piece is irregular and imperfect.
