Flying at the speed of sound

Whoa! I'm on a bit of a roll with these ATCA Art Journals prompts. For week #7 the theme was "super fly". Now, when I first read the various past prompts, this one was one I actually knew for a fact I wouldn't bother with. But while I was browsing through a couple magazines for images for some of the other prompts, this woman with a cape practically jumped out at me. And when I saw the speed limit sign a few minutes later, I knew I was onto something LOL! Guess it's true that you should never say never!The background and swirls are watered down acrylics. The title is stamped and the writing is a Pitt pen. The writing on the left is some quotes I found on the Internet. In case you can't read my handwriting (yeah, it's bad ... sometimes I can't read it either!), here's what I wrote:

(especially those sounds that mean my kids are getting into some kind of mischief!)

"The world is full of women blindsided by the unceasing demands of motherhood, still flabbergasted by how a job can be terrific and torturous." ~Anna Quindlen

"To fly, we have to have resistance." ~Maya Lin

"The phrase 'working mother' is redundant." ~Jane Sellman

"A man's work is from sun to sun, but a mother's work is never done." ~Unknown

"Motherly love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible." ~Marion C. Garretty

"The most important thing she'd learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one." ~Jill Churchill
