Sketching in church
I've finally gotten back into sketching during church. I was in a funk for awhile....one of the ladies I have sketched 3 times is now facing terminal cancer and has only weeks to live. I think it kind of made me feel weird about sketching people. Two of my other subjects have died within the past two years and a part of me is feeling sad when I sketch people thinking, "I wonder if they'll be here next year". Kind of morbid I know, but it has hit home recently and was bothering me for awhile. I know it's not my fault, but somehow I feel more closely connected because I drew them.
The lady on the left is Stephanie (the youngest looking Grandma I have ever seen!) and the young lady on the right is Jayden.
