Based on her high school Senior picture. Young, bright beautiful... she had already had a rough life. She didn't know that what lay ahead was a bad marriage, alcoholism, divorce, poverty. My relationship with her was very painful. She passed away last July. I choose to believe that this was the real her. Not the disturbed, distressed alcoholic that I knew.
Thanx to Serendipity for the feature, and to all of you who gave such sweet feedback. I had no idea this sketch would get such an amazing response from you all! I'm honored! So many hearts! <3
Thanx so much, everyone!
