"Mother and Daughter"


I held a surprise birthday for my wife yesterday and she was surprised. The entire family and some friends all joined together at our daughter's home for the party and it was a great success. Afterwards some of us went down to the Ice Harbor Brewery to listen to a guitar player sing some old songs and the celebration and fun continued into the late hours of the evening. We got home about 11:30. This morning she wanted me to sketch something she could put on "Thank You" cards, so I chose this sketch which depicts a Mother and Daughter. She was going to use until we found something much more pertinent to the party. So I thought well, why not post this image anyway.

It's graphite in my moleskine sketchbook.

  6. This one's real nicely done. The best piece I've seen on this blog.

    It would make a great Corporate Identity too.
