Wordless Wednesday: My Mom the Artist

Me when I was a baby

My Mom is an amazing commercial artist. In her spare time she is a freelance artist and draws pencil portraits for people. She does amazing work and has been very successful with it. This is just a small collection of her pieces. She has done wedding pictures, babies, military photos, and so on.

Many of the pictures end up being heartbreaking because they are pictures of people’s loved ones that have passed away. One of my favorites was of a US Marine that was killed in a car accident. She captured him so well that his eyes would follow you in the room creepy yet amazing. He truly left an impression on both of our hearts.

As hard as it is for her to draw a picture of someone who has passed on my Mom feels like this is her way of being able to give someone a unique portrait of their loved one.

Effin Lars!!! Nice mom to do that for you! I preferred James and his deep angry voice, but all in all they were(ARE) phenomenal back in the day and "acting like a maniac-WHIPLASH".

I am sure you are cooking up a storm for the holidays. Peace and happy holidays! I am tracking all my followers down and wishing them so.
