Illustration Friday, Aging
Mom at her 50th Wedding anniversary luncheon
This week's IF (Illustration Friday) topic is Aging. I thought about lots of ways to participate. I've been feeling rather aged lately myself. I thought maybe a self portrait. I just grew a go-tee. It came in almost all gray.
But I have been thinking about my Mom a lot lately too. She passed away a few years ago and it occurred to me I had done only one sketch of here my whole life (so far). It was from a picture I took of her at her 50th wedding anniversary celebration to my father. I wish I had done so much more.
So here's the lesson on aging: Draw pictures of the ones you love now. You never know when they may not be available to model.
