These two portraits are of my mother and dad when they were 26 years old. She painted these pictures using their wedding photos as a guide.
My sister has her share of portraits in her home as well. We cherish these paintings and hopefully our children will too. Painting was a passion for my mother and if she had had more time in this world she'd still be at it. Who knows, she may still be painting where she is now and I wonder WHO is getting their portrait painted.
My mother also had a sense of humor. The drawings below my mother drew in pencil of some pretty funny characters.
Aren't these guys cute!
