  2. So beautiful, and I love her posture, you have her eyes, if not the colour (I can't tell) what a lovely way to tell her how much you love her

    1. I am enjoying doing these sketches from the old photos and seeing the changes in this way over time. Unlike just viewing the photos, the time spent sketching has me thinking of what her life was like in each of the years. She is still doing well, now in her 90’s, though her memory has been fading over the last few years.
