My Dear Aunt Rosie Mae

I have spent the last few evenings (and late nights) working on this drawing of my Aunt Rosie Mae; my dad’s oldest brother’s wife. She passed away last year at the age of 98. Aunt Rosie loved her family and she loved church. Her daughter, my cousin, sent me a very old photo of her mom from when she was young asking if I could do anything with it. As you can see the photo was torn and faded.

I wasn’t sure if I could do anything with it.  It looked like it might have been a wedding photo, which would have placed the timing in the 1930’s possibly. I researched vintage hats and found one that would seem to fit that time period and the photo. The challenge was putting this all together and developing a nice drawing.  I enjoyed re-creating this photo through a drawing. It made me feel like I was leaving a mark in history. 🌺



  1. Wow; the picture you re-created of your Aunt Rosie-Mae is BEAUTIFUL; You truly brought her to LIFE.
