Hello steemians, the Work before us today is a work i did of my friends mum in which i termed, the drawing of an African mother, this drawing signifies a typical look of an African woman, the details on her headtie took me several hours to do, however this work was presented to her as a birthday present, it was a happy day for the whole members of the household, when they finally got to see their mum in a portrait work. She was speechless when she saw it, thats just the power of drawing, it helps put smiles on faces of people.

It is as same as real. So realistic it is! It shows us a intrinsic mother as a ordinary mom. Sometimes women described as a lady. Mostly white people is done like that. But this contains so many things about the mother. She is not a woman, she is a mother. Thank you ~~


Thanks so much for your constructive comment @trueimagine, she's a great mother.
