My Mother

P_Mom

Mom
1922-1992

Charcoal portrait that I created of my mother, referenced from her 1940’s portrait.

She will always be missed.

Born 12/18/1922 to 10/10/1992

May She Rest in Peace

≈≈

Created with charcoal powder/dust and charcoal pencils.

I primarily used my cotton cloth technique as an application method.

A dear friend of mine, Binky,

recommended that I re-post this artwork

since I was new to the blogosphere at the time of the original posting on December 27, 2008…Thanks Binky

    In this wonderful portrait of your mother I can see the truly delightful energy and immaculate detail that you have lovingly applied within, and it is a beautiful portrait my friend. One that I am sure is framed and has its own special place inside your home. Brilliant

    • Ah, my mother’s portrait….my favorite of all of my portraits to this day. I am still very pleased with the results of this one; her expression and features are captured extremely well. She would have been proud of this; rest her soul.
      Thank you for commenting on my mother’s portrait, Andro! You have made my day again!

  3. That’s a very nice portrait, Deb. I would imagine it would have been difficult to paint.

    You posted this one so long ago, few of your present commenters have seen it, which is too bad. Maybe you could re-post some of your earlier works when you have a slow time.

    • You know, Binky, you right! I’m going to do that to see what feedback I get after all these years….thank you for the suggestion, Binky!

        • I haven’t got any feedback on it yet today, but I do hope you are right. I know my mother would have loved this drawing of her.
          Thanks Binky for the idea. It never occurred to me to re-post them, then when you mentioned it, I recalled us talking about it once before.

  4. Wow, Deb. She looks kind, and like she felt things deeply. You take good care.

  6. Lovely piece Debbie! 🙂

    Your mother was a very pretty woman and you’ve done her proud… 🙂

    Thanks for the visit and comment! 🙂

    The new keyboard was ordered yesterday from Microdirect and should arrive in the next few days! 🙂

    We have similar weather problems here.

    As I write it is snowing in Scotland and wet and cold here! 😦

    The colour is fine hun – the pictures look good and everything is eminently readable – remember your text will remain its original colour, so your old blogs will be unreadable on a light background…

    The couhing has eased and I feel great – a couple more days and I’ll be fit to go to church! 🙂

    Love and squishy hugs!

    • -She’d of love to know that…wonder if she does anyway. Thank you, Prenin…I really put my heart into this one.
      -You’re welcome…it’s my pleasure.
      -Glad to hear that your getting a new one!
      -I know, back and forth all the time.
      -I’ve managed to get the text to change with the lighter background without any troubles. The trouble is I can’t seem to make up my mind about the dark or light.
      -I’m really glad to hear you’re getting better. I’m also sure you’ve been missed at church….keep getting well.

      Love and Hugs, xx

  24. Hi Deb, I’m finally back and catching up! This is absolutely lovely and a wonderful tribute to your Mom! She would be so proud and I’m glad you re-blogged it to share with us. I can now feel your loss with my Mom’s passing. I was just thinking how hard this Mother’s Day is going to be for all of us…well, wonderful job, my friend, sending you hugs! xo

    • Aw, thank you so much Cha! I’m really glad I took his advice. There are so many artworks as this one that never got any attention back when I posted them because I knew nothing about how to draw in public views.
      My mom would be so glad you liked the drawing of her…as I do!

    • just try, you’ll surprise yourself being that it is your mom. Follow the tip in my link I provided in the post.

      • Although I understand the technique…but it is the sense of art that I don’t have.
        I will just do what I can…write about her on my blog on her birthday which is on June 🙂

        • That is also a form of Art, Novroz…I love when you write about her.

  28. I have managed to do a few respectable side profile portraits over the years but the frontal view – forget it. You’re particular talent is that it looks like a B/W photo.

  30. I had to revisit this one, as it came to mind over the weekend as I sat and pondering shading in face drawings, etc. Very beautifully done Debbie!

    Reply
    • Oh my mother would be tickled to know that you were thinking about her…as I am too!
      I would love to be able to do a painting of her. Of anyone for that matter, but I just haven’t managed to date to get them to look too realistic.
      Thank you for the lovely comment, Scott!
