heartwork by me


With the passing of my uncle making 3 weeks, my grandmother asked me to paint this photograph of my mom and her siblings in 1973. im more than honored but i initially was intimidated and doubting myself, not only am I not a painter but I’ve never done a portrait! I don’t want to let my grandmother down, so I’m in the process of finishing up. I’ve drawn the image with charcoal, graphite pencils & fine tipped sharpie. Soon the painting will begin on a legit canvas, the hardest part is over!!!
