  • Portrait Of Grandmother

    Hi Everyone, I have been working on this portrait of grandmother and finally got it finished. The photo is from around ten years ago. She just turned 96 on dec.13th. She has been quite ill and as of this past friday the doctors have told us that she may only be with us for a few days to a couple of weeks. Steve

    Steve, my prayers are with Grandma that she gains the strength and will to stay with us. Grandma and I share the same birthdate. Nice portrait, too.

      Sorry to hear that your Grandma is ill, Steve. That is a great portrait you've done there - she's a cheerful looking lady.

        Sorry to hear about your grandmother's illness Steve, but what a wonderful old lady she looks! Your portrait is full of character, I think.

          Hi Everyone, I would like to thank you all on behalf of my grandmother for all of your prayers and concerns. Her name is Nina M. Oates. It was about six years ago that she was sitting on the sofa at my mothers house and was squinting her eyes looking at a wall clock. She asked me this question " What time is it up there on the wall? " My answer was " The same time it is here on the sofa. " Now I am talking about a one hundred pound ninety year old woman here. I weighed in at two twenty. I lost to that backhand and retort that " I asked you what time it was not for a smart elleck answer. " I wanted to share that story with you all my extended family. Steve

            Hi Everyone, I have not been to active on here this week. I posted back in January about my grandmother being ill and not expected to live very long. I am sad to say that she passed away tuesday evening march 13th. She held on longer than any of the docters expected. She had a long wonderful life as she was 96 years and 3 months young without bad health until the last few years. I wanted to keep you all updated as a lot have asked about her. Steve

                                Used a 788 for many years. It now resides with a crafty family friend.

                                I use acrylic paint mixed with water to stain when I want vibrant colors. There was an article in one of the issues awhile back where a product called "Unicorn Spit" was suggested for the colors---and many people swear by it....
