This is a drawing of my late mother-in-law. I always hated the bad rap that mothers-in-law get, because she was a very loving second mother to me and a really great Nana. Everyone adored her. The photo reference for this drawing was taken on the evening she and my husband and another Mom/son couple went to see Frank Sinatra in concert in Milwaukee. I know it was a perfect evening for all four.
I was on vacation for a week to visit family and to celebrate my birthday. I took a break from painting which physically felt good. While away, I focused on drawing, concentrating on portraits of family members. It's really good to get away, but there's no place like home.
