Portrait by Michelle

Created in May of 2011, this was my first ever portrait and one of the best any day gift I’ve received. One day, Michelle was intently looking at me while I was doing house chores. I never paid attention to what she was doing at that moment. After a few minutes of repeatedly looking at me, she gave me this portrait she drew. Sweet!

“A portrait is like an ornamental headstone. It is not for the subject, but for those who look upon it. For those you want to remember.” ― Julie Klassen, The Painter’s Daughtermommypic
