My Sunday Picture....


Today I had to post a  picture of a 'someone' as my Sunday picture. Because today is my awesome sister-in-laws birthday. 
This is a drawing I did of her in about the late 1970's or maybe the early 1980's. I don't remember because I am a couple of years older than she is. The thing about her is that she still looks the same as in this portrait. Maybe a little tanner 'cause she now lives in the tropics, but otherwise, yeah, pretty much the same.

I had a sneaking suspicion that portrait would show up today! The year was actually 1978, the date of Steve's baptism.
Thank you for being there in the moments of my life, and thank you for a lifetime of memories, dear Elenka, saved forever with the stroke of your brush.

Beautiful portrait.
Okay, the card cracked me up. How funny? I need the larger size now and I'm not 50 yet!

Beautiful, Elenka.What did you use to do this portrait?

Elenka said...

I used reddish brown conte pastels, which are hard pastels.
Also, a soft white pastel.

Would you mind adopting me into your family??? I always thought it would be cool to have either a doctor or a mechanic in the family, but now I must add artist to the list!
