They Left Laughing


Pastel over Watercolor

This painting came about as the result of a photo I took at my Godmother’s (mother’s sister) birthday party. It was there that my husband paid off his bet to waltz her around the room if she made it to 100! Flushed and breathless, she then dropped into a chair beside my uncle for his approval. Oh, how proud he was as he leaned over to tell her she was, ‘the belle of the ball – and the prettiest girl of them all!’

…They left laughing.”
