Springtime

Hurrah! a sunny day for beach walks with friends. for visiting elderly friends who've just moved into a Seniors Village. After the driving rain with howling winds we were treated to yesterday (first day of spring, indeed) today was certainly a treat.
The young one is important to another DD, the regal woman...my grandmother from a photo my brother had copied from a slide our dad had.

Very nice portraits, Sue

These are simple and wonderful. You are really able to make young children look young - and seniors to show their age. I consider that an advanced skill that I may someday achieve....

Your portraits are elegant. You've captured even open smiles in pencil without a resulting stiffness. Wonderful ... I'm so glad I linked in...
