Queen of The Family


    Calm, serene and free. The wind gently blows in her face as this woman takes a moment to reflect on how fortunate she is to live a life on the land. Her nurturing spirit reaches out to the animals on the farm who are also considered important members of her family.

    Hi Cindy
    I love this. I live in country South Australia and to me this is typical of so many hard working farmers and mums that I know. They are so full of grit and determination to make their lives and the lives of their families work. They go through so much and put so much into each day - but at the end of the day they come up smiling, going to school meetings, taking their kids to sport, preparing meals and dinner parties and generally just looking after their families and their communities. Your drawing shows the wonderful spirit of the Australian country women.

    Queen of the family is one of my favourites Cindy and you have captured her perfectly and what you have mentioned Jill is so true.

    Brigitte.
