Grandma Edna

March 5, 2013

Pencil sketch:  I drew this portrait of Grandma Edna Allen when I was somewhere around 14 I think…didn’t know much about composition at the time, obviously.  It has floated around for years, you can see a few stains here and there.  Mom asked if I would add her dress on, hence the seam, I still had the same notebook I used back then so it wasn’t too difficult.  After carefully taping it together, my dear hubs cut a piece of plexiglass to fit the frame she wanted to use, Hobby Lobby cut a mat for me.  Amazing how difficult it is to find an oval mat, or someone who cuts them.

    Julie, this looks exactly like I remember her. Such a wonderfully sweet lady, just like your Mom. I would spend the night with your Mom and we would have fun painting.
