From My Sketchbook – An Ode to My Mom

I just arrived back to the Big Apple after a lovely weekend spent with my mom at her cottage in NH.   As always, she put up with me most graciously, made me fabulous meals and a t0-die-for  rhubarb pie, and cheered me on at my trio recital in Vermont.  I could go on and on about all that I love about my mom, but for now I’m offering up this simple “ode” and cartoon to her…

I am truly blessed,

Since my mom’s the best.

She is pretty switched on,

(Except from dusk to dawn.)

He knew it wasn’t new,

The view was déjà vu.

So he zoned instead,

Looking straight ahead.

In this cartoon vignette,

You’ll see an unlikely quartet.

Not en route to a soiree,

Just strangers on the subway.

When sketching those advanced in years,

You’ll find the need to switch gears.

Placing a wrinkle here and there,

Gives your sketch the needed flair.

If you want to cartoon,

Don’t be afraid to lampoon,

 

The more character you inject,

The better the effect.

Plugged in, tuned out,

Is today’s norm sans doubt.

 

No need to sketch on the sly,

Everyone is oblivious to my eye.

Her pretty profile,

Made sketching worthwhile.

I studied her classic style,

Intently from across the aisle.
