Grandma

January 6, 2017

Here’s another drawing I felt compelled to do from my mother’s old photo album.

 

This is Anna Vargas, my grandma at age 21. Look at her face. She had no idea of what her future held. There were hard times ahead for her, like there were for so many other poor immigrants. Her faith and no-nonsense attitude saw her through it all. 

 

The photo upon which this is based was taken in 1921.
