The Lady and the Lambs -Paint Party Friday


This is a graphite rendering from 2005, of an old picture my Mother loved. It was a gift from long ago--the person who gave it to Mums said she looked just like this beautiful woman. It is true! Indeed, in her younger years, Mumsie was beautiful--but not in the classical sense. She is still lovely--a stately yet mischievous and fun lady whom everyone loves.



Years ago, when color programs were first coming out, I scanned my sketch into the computer, then played with the paint programs. I was astonished to see so much color coming from a grey and white graphite drawing--I saved the results. But after that, any attempts to recreate these color patterns failed. I wonder . . .
.
May the joy and beauty of Christmas permeate your lives--even through great tragedy and loss.  God is good. 

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Thank you so much for dropping by!  Have a lovely weekend, sweet Friends!  Happy Paint Party Friday!
