I draw this picture few years ago. My model was an old photo from 1921. I didn’t try to do it in 100% realistic way, I just wanted to focus on her eyes. What she was dreaming of when she was 21 years old ? Her life wasn’t easy because of wars in Finland at 1939 – 1944, but she had a long life and she raised 3 children with her husband.
A little dress for my grandchild.
