Sketch of Roscoe Holdaway

This is a sketch my mother did of her father January 31, 1942, just a few days after Pearl Harbor Day.  She was twelve years old.  It is better than any photograph she has of him.Kathleen's Pencil Sketch of Roscoe 1941

  1. Very talented lady!

    I remember an art class in middle school (at that time, it was called junior high). We had to draw a portrait of someone, and I chose my favorite aunt. She posed without moving a single muscle for the entire length of time I drew her face, and I was determined to create an exact likeness. When I was all done, I proudly showed her my work. She was furious! I had made sure to include every, single wrinkle, and in the portrait she looked like she was about 90 years old. That was the end of any desire I had in becoming a portrait artist.
