charcoal 12" x 9"

This is a study for a large painting. It's my mom. I'm afraid she might find it unflattering, but I don't. I find her expression complex and revealing. She's in her eighties, and I think she is still beautiful.  


  1. I think she's beautiful, too. Great job!

  2. I like her face - a beautiful expression. I drew my mother during her last year and then painted it in color about a year later. I treasure having it.
