"3 Sons"
Graphite Drawing
I just finished this
commissioned 18"x20"
drawing on drawing board. My
client had three sons die
before they were one year old.
Then she had two more sons
who have lived. She has
missed the what photos there
would have been taken of her
first three sons as they grew
up. She told me her family wall
wasn't complete. So she
commissioned me to draw her
dead sons. They had
appeared to her in a dream, so
she sent me the information
she knew about them. I used
family members faces as
guides for each of them. I am
pleased how it turn out.
