When I was visiting my grandmother today, I realized I had not painted her picture in a long time. This digital painting is based on a picture I took with my phone awhile ago.

I can only hope to come close to capturing her sweet nature and terrific good humor in a painting. Did I mention she's 98? To put this in historical perspective, President William H. Taft, the U.S. 27th president, was in office the year she was born.
