My best friend Tanya.

My best friend died 23 years ago, I still miss her and connect to her in my mind very often. Proper to say she still exists for me. She was 7 years older than me and very wise. She was an aircraft engineer and interior designer. She had double education. She was thirsty for knowledge and curious and drugged me to interesting events and adventures. I have deep respect to 3 people in the world: my father, Tanya and my other friend Konstantin. Here I used ink.

Thank you very much Pam, it is true, every time I have a new project or see something interesting I think how she would appreciate that or what she would say. We had very happy friendship and shared many interests.

This is a beautiful portrait - I can "feel" Tanya just looking at this...a great tribute. I lost my best friend Tom on September 22, 1989 and like you - still thinking lovingly of the times we share, all the books we read, the secrets we kept close. Maybe I will draw his picture tonight...

Thank you very much Christy and Kelly, I do believe they just go somewhere, where they happy. They live in our souls too. I cried when I drew her. But it was good. By drawing I connected. I didn't see her photo for all this years, someone just sent me 2 pictures of her, her relative. We didn't take pictures, we drew. Christy, show me drawing of Tom please. Tanya died in 1988, I think May 30, I don't know for sure, they didn't tell me, I was pregnant, I thought she was too busy for me.
