I was going through old photos today and came across 
a candid shot of my mother which I've always loved and decided 
to do this drawing of her.

In the photo, she was sitting off to the side at a party
and seemed to look up as the photographer snapped her picture.
I wonder if my father took the photo and whether he was struck 
by her lovely bone structure and her soft, dark hair.

I loved her so much
and still miss her every day,
even after ten years.

Who was the more fortunate, mother or daughter? I'm sure you were treasured by her. Lovely, lovely lady.

This sketch is so alive, and filled with love. A real gem...both your mom and your tribute to her!
