Wish you where here.

This is for April challenge on SkineArt "Wish you where here." I did portrait of my mother in silver point and Moleskine book in front. I got recently 2 pencils with silver wire from Bob from Scotland.  Amazing. What a warm and wonderful person he is. I just expressed interest  in it and he sent it to me. 
I am really happy that I try to put my visual thoughts on paper, no matter how hard sometimes it feels to draw it. This what my first teacher use to say, do it, even it feels sometimes you don't have enough skills or energy.

This is so sensitive and poignant. A perfect marriage of media and subject. x

Thank you, Gillian. It was my first attempt in drawing my mother. Pretty healing.
