Thelma Mary McKay | Personal Piece | graphite on heavy paper

My grandmother was one of my best friends. Visits were more than frequent and we could always make each other laugh. She passed away just a couple weeks ago, one month shy of her 90th birthday. I created this piece for my grandfather in pencil on paper from a small 2.5"x3.5" photograph.
I don't often go in for straight-up photo reproduction, but drawing this last night was so much fun.
