two sketches



Two quick drawings from my art school days recently came back home to me, one of my then future mother-in-law and one of my then future husband. She loved these so I had given them to her. They were framed along with another one I’d done of a future sister-in-law. They were hung in every home she lived in since.

Being behind glass, I had difficulty capturing good photos of these drawings. Finally I tried my scanner by taking the lid off in order to fit the frame over the edges. They are still not accurate copies but suffice as an example of my very early sketch work and shall be my record in case one of our daughters wishes to have these. As I’ve mentioned before, my late mother-in-law’s home has been sold and contents are being dispersed amongst family as much as possible. “Omi” was a wonderful supporter of my work, even purchasing several of my prints which have also come back.
