My Beautiful Grandma

This is a portrait of my grandmother Margaret Bergen. I didn’t really know her, as she died 6 months after I was born. She was my mother’s mother. She grew up in New Orleans and was really into fashion and beauty. One time she read somewhere, if you pluck all your eyelashes out they’ll grow back longer, so she did, and it took ages for them to come back! Ha Ha! Everyone who knew her always told me how sweet she was. She worked as a sunday school teacher. When she got sick with cancer, my mother & I came over from Georgia and for 2 weeks everyone did everything to make her last days special. No one told her she was dying. I never thought I looked much like her, cos of her dark hair, but after drawing this, I can really see my self in her face. oxo gd
