This is a pen and ink drawing of my great grandmother's home in South Carolina.  I'm not sure how old the house is, but I know it's pretty old my grandmother passed away about six years ago and she was 93.  This was her mothers home and the one she grew up in.  It is still in the family.  It currently belongs to one of her 14 siblings!  :o I own the swing that is on the front porch! :)

One of the siblings had one of these done for all of us.  My picture is about 25 yrs old. The artist did a wonderful job!

That's a beautiful drawing and I'm sure it's a precious keepsake.

Great memories. I always like to see something that's older than me and still in good shape!
If not now, when? If not me, who?

C.B.  Wow..that's beautiful! Now tell me every detail how you did it..just kidding. The house, the trees, all look great! O0
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

C.B. How was that foliage? It looks great! I'm afraid to try it.

Pat, I have no idea!  This was a gift given to me by my grandmother, of my great-grandparents home. The artist did a great job.  I have ordered the "Let's Draw" program, because my drawings look like your self-portrait! ;D
