Drawing challenge #15: LAMB/SHEEP

Mother's Day. 
Blossoms are falling down.
And the trees and skies are building a fresh heaven's heart.

But: sometimes my children (for me) behave like balky goats...

or black sheep...

At the latest I have to remember that my kids are just innocent lambs.

I shouldn't take them as scapegoats for my whims. 

"Excuse me, please, my lovelies. I try my very best."
Maybe a wallpaper in their rooms with lambs on it helps me keep in mind? 

This drawing challenge is hosted by wonderful Milady Stephanie.
Take a ride to her farm and have a look at more LAMBs and SHEEPs. 

The goats on top are painted from my firstborn Princesse.
And 'Bed'-man is sewed after a map of my firstborn Prince from my friend Miezi

I wish you a Happy Mother's Day.

... Danke, Elke, Maman.  
Alles Gute zum Muttertag.

  8. Dear Sara,
    yes, its mesmerizing! Today are 24°C, sunny and breezy...the leafs of the poplars and the water of the Eisenbach shimmers in the sun. We hear the queen Mary II tooting with the other ships around: its 822nd Birthday from the Harbour of Hamburg and there is a big party.
    I hope all is well with you.
