Oil Sketch of my Mother by grobles63 Oil Sketch of my Mother by grobles63
I did this so long ago. My Mom sat for many such sketches.
It makes me a little sad to look at this because my Mother is at a different place in her life now, she doesn't recognize me. I'm glad I have so many of these paintings and sketches of family and friends who sat for me.

I find it very difficult to paint a portrait of someone I know so well. So I admire that this is painted with a lot of confidence. The woman looks very sturdy and powerfull.

Thank you.
My mother endured a lot and can be very tough, she is now 87 years old, she is actually a big sweetheart who watched a lot of the neighborhood kids for working parents. They came to call her Titi, (spanish slang for Aunt, and a lot of these kids weren't latino). She had a great sense of humor which has not left her even though at this stage she remembers little, (she does not recognize me when I visit her).
