Bessie Lucille

I spent quite a long time with my dear Grandma Bessie while painting this. During the process I saw my mother’s likeness, my own, my sisters and even my nieces showed up from time to time. Grandma was such a profound part of our lives,  She and I bought our first watercolors together!  I hope she’d like her portrait.
