(Not So) Wordless Wednesday: The Three Sisters

We went to visit my husband’s grandma while we were staying in Kansas. She is almost 96 years old, which I think is so cool!

She had this beautiful picture of her (center) and her two sisters.   Don’t you just love it?  The old frame is gorgeous, too.

She said that the photographer actually took 3 separate shots and put them together into one.

As we sat there and visited, Ellie pulled out her pad of paper and pencil and started sketching.

Later, she filled her sketch in with watercolors and this is the final product.  She definitely doesn’t get her artistic skills from me, or they would have been stick people. :)  I’m so proud of her!

    The sisters photo is a treasure! Did the photographer do the hand-coloring? Surely b/w was the only film available when the sisters were photographed…Ellie’s artwork is remarkably close to the photo, especially the facial expressions and the fashions. Wow!ReplyCancel

    Taking separate photos and then putting the three sisters together must have been pretty high tech for those days.

    Ellie is amazing!ReplyCancel

    The photo is wonderful; thanks so much for sharing! And thanks for continuing to share Ellie’s interests and talents – first video, now drawing, can’t wait to see what’s next!!

    My drawing ability is also stick-figure level, and my writing ability not much better, so I’m in awe of your blogging!

    Found you when looking for posts about NGS conference, and became a follower then. Have especially enjoyed the backwoods grave search and Esther’s suitors – can’t wait to hear about the guy who stole her heart!ReplyCancel
