    You have so captured the spirit of my mother. The portrait brought me to tears. Good tears. Your work is beautiful.

    Awwww, I’m so happy you like it! It is difficult sometimes to do a portrait of someone that you have never met in person, but somehow, I felt connected to your mother. It was an absolute pleasure drawing her1
    I’m sure it is very difficult to lose someone you love, so I hope this portrait can give you some comfort and joy in her memory.
    Take care,
    Barbara

    Hello Bonnie,
    I just have to share the great news! The portrait that I drew of your mother was chosen to appear on a colored pencil magazine! This was a first for me, so I was so excited, I wanted to share the news with her loved ones! Joan was so lovely to draw! I wanted to show you what the cover looks like, but the comment section won’t let me. I’ll post it on the blog section of my website so you can see how nice it looks.Take care, Barbara
