Drawings - Portraits & Figures

I have put my art on hold for many years while I raised my children. Now I am trying to get back into my art it in a very different world with computers and the world wide web. Through my own personal tragety I experienced in 1991 when I lost my 4 year old son in a car accident I drew his portrait for his grave stone. The monument company had an artist that they used but the portrait didn't even look like him, so I redrew the portrait called "Rayray" on my site and it is on his stone today. I have reach out to many people who have lost someone very close and have drawn their portrait from a photo for them. Many times the photo is very small or poor quality and difficult to do but these are also often the pictures of our loved ones that best capture them. That is why I call myself Forgetmenot portraits. I have updated my site to include some examples of my work. I am creating a web site now and will include a link for anyone who would like to see more of my work.
