Coffee, Coffee, Coffee

It feels like it's been a while since I've put my color pencils into action. But I'm back at it now.

Darlene wanted an illustration to give to her mother for Mother's Day. I think I made the deadline alright. Darlene's mom is apparently a coffee-aholic. Just look at this photo. That's right. There are three coffee makers sitting there on her kitchen counter. What kind of addiction to coffee does one have to have in order to need three coffee makers to satisfy it? I don't know, but the coffee must flow at her house!

You and I don't know each other Mrs. Darlene's Mom, but I'm think that a little intervention is in order. Oh well, we've all got our own issues. I've got a thing for the Dr. Pepper.

Darlene said said also likes roses. (With an obsessive personality like that there's no telling how many rose bushes she has) Darlene also asked me to put her mother in this leopard/rose print blouse. (You can't tell me you've seen another one just like it.)

So, I hear and I obey. Here are the results. What do you think?

I guess it will be a while before we hear how what Mom thinks of the illustration.

Thanks Darlene for choosing me to honor your mother. She's a lovely lady and I enjoy creating this doodle for her.

How many of these have you done now Rick? and how many pots of crayons? Your poor little hands must be worn out.

This is a great one, very like her. I like the roses.
