A Superhero is in Everyone

This is my superhero persona - Colored pencil on sketch pad

I created this after the death of my husband, and upon my return to college.  I was pretty down and we had to create a superhero persona for ourselves.  I drew this one afternoon, and I decided to turn into this widow woman every-time I needed help or strength, or whatever it was I needed to get me through the night.  It did back fire on me, as I found myself striving for a level of perfection that is just not possible for human kind.  It’s best to always be yourself, and believe in the same.  You can surely fly, even when your living within your worst nightmare.
