Illustration Friday "Portrait"
This is done in silverpoint, on prepared paper and its a portrait of my Mom, who just turned 95 a month ago. She remembered the soldiers coming back to her little village after fighting in France, in WW1, that is. We have a long lived family, she has twin sisters who just turned 100. And her other sister, who has since passed away, was born in 1900, and remembered reading in the newspaper about the sinking of the Titanic.
I found these in a garden center, nestled in the Astilbe.
