O’ mother O’ child


i wanted to draw a statue and what a better option than african statues to draw

i was half way through it when i realised it was mother and son

i had fun drawing this  used charcoal colours and black canvas                                                  i don’t know what to say more except that i have a special place in my heart for this here is the photo i took inspiration from


it’s the one in the middle as you can see it’s not exactly the same though


I RISE in the dawn, and I kneel and blow
Till the seed of the fire flicker and glow;
And then I must scrub and bake and sweep
Till stars are beginning to blink and peep;
And the young lie long and dream in their bed
Of the matching of ribbons for bosom and head,
And their ~y goes over in idleness,
And they sigh if the wind but lift a tress:
While I must work because I am old,
And the seed of the fire gets feeble and cold.
