I love doing portraits This is a sketch I did of my son this morning
It's amazing how your children take on features that are a mix of not only your husband and yourself but also of grandparents and even great grandparents. You get to see this a lot more clearly when you begin to draw them.
How they change from 2 - 10 -17 is amazing, and you wish that they'd stay small cause they don't let you kiss their chubby cheeks anymore after they are grown. lol
And well.... cheeks aren't chubby any more either. lol Overnight, they become young men and women you don't recognize anymore.
And yet.......through pictures you see traces from the past. Traces from faces which now are both deja vous and the future.
It gives you a funny feeling inside. :)
