Barbara, Charcoal

8" x 9"
Charcoal on gray tinted paper

Tomorrow is my sister-in-law's birthday and this is her gift.  If their subdivision roads are clear they will come for a visit.  They had so much ice and snow they couldn't get out of their driveway. 

Barbara has the most beautiful silvery, gray-white hair and lovely cheek bones.  Not only that she cooks & bakes like a dream and has more energy than anyone I know.

She had to love this. So rich. I love your incredible sensitivity to the edge variations and texture changes. Happy happy new year!

Your sister-in-law is so lucky to receive such a generous work of love - and talent!
