Mum and Dad

Mum And Dad

I think I may have posted this drawing before but this is a better scan.  Also, after my Dad’s death, I wanted to post this drawing again.

The occasion of this drawing was their 60th wedding anniversary.  They were married for 65 years.

  1. This is a gorgeous picture – what a sense of happiness and togetherness . They look like really nice folks – and how nice to be able to remember your father in this way, and that you are kind enough to share it with us.

      1. Stew, you are a darling to send people my way – thank you! I’m plodding on with Dodson, and have just got to the end of chapter 2. I eagerly look forward to whatever he sets each time, however hard, and will post the last drawings from chapter 2 soon . I also made a biscuit (I’m in England – that’s a cookie) recipe this weekend and have half finished drawing it, so it really can be the illustrated biscuit!
        I look forward to whatever you next post.
