Portrait of my Mother


                                                                                                                                                               Today I completed this pencil portrait of my mother.  It was drawn on medium drawing paper and measures 11 x 14 inches.  The reference photo was made of her in the early 1950s. I hope she likes it when she sees it.  It is a surprise, she does not know I am doing her portrait.

As I am fond of saying, the medium is pencil with some blood, sweat and tears, especially this one of my mother.
