Three old ladies

This picture has been around for years. Grandma died in 1970, so you know that this is old. It just struck me as funny so I sketched the three old ladies who were dressed for a luncheon. My grandma is on the right-barely tolerating the other two who are apparently not prim and proper! Think that my aunt in the in the center and I have no idea who is on the left  wearing a fur stole.

What a wonderful rendering this is! You have really captured their personalities . . . and those hats are just wonderful!!

Your drawing is like a little slice of a time gone by. I especially like the one of your grandmother with her beautiful jacket and coordinating hat.

This is wonderful Sandra! I love your description of your Grandmother and can see how prim and proper she is. I can see why you wanted to draw from this photograph. Well done!

Oh this is wonderful. I feel like I could write the story of their conversation just from the details you have included!
