When I started the three portraits for Mom’s birthday, I always thought that this would be the most difficult (outside of the self portraits), but this one drew itself!!. It was almost effortless!!
You see, my parents both worked full-time jobs while I was growing up and because “Gramma” lived with us, she became my substitute Mom.
She came to this country at the ripe old age of 19 from a little farming village in Lithuania. She taught herself English..and she only had a 3rd grade education. She had a spine of pure iron.. brave enough to cross an ocean to a new country, adopt it as her own and never look back. I don’t know if I could do that but now I know where I get my “gumption” from!! Had she been born 100 years later, I have no doubt that she would have done very well for herself..
