I have shown you some of my charcoal portraits before, and talked about how they are what I term "heritage" drawings. By that, I mean the portrait can be handed down from generation to generation. 

This portrait just arrived at its home in Calgary. I have done her two older sisters at about the same age, so all 3 are hanging in this clients' home. One day, each girl will receive these portraits from her parents, and be able to show her own family what she looked like at this age. And, of course, one day, many generations down the road, someone will be able to show her family what "great-grandma" looked like back in 2014 (the year the photo was taken from which I worked). I love the idea of art traveling down the years, and being treasured through all those generations!
