Lightening struck last night
I was talking to my friend Bobbi who I have not seen nor heard from in over three years. [my fault] She found me through my blog believe it or not and she told me she sort of 'caught up' with what was going on with me the past 8 months or so.
You know how it is with really good friends. You can pick up as if you had just seen each other yesterday. I don't know if my mind was in a good place or her quick wit made me happy or her warm soul made me feel safe but I just started sketching an old photo I found in an album.
This little girl is a relative from my mother's side. Based on the photo, she would probably be in her late sixties today. I have no idea who she is but her hand is being held by her grandmother. With the photo being B&W and her face almost 1/2 inch high, I was able to improvise on it a lot. I may paint the grandmother and her brother.
