Two years ago today, my Aunt passed away after a lengthy battle. As a gift to my Uncle, I drew my Aunt. A few weeks later, one of their daughters (my cousin) called me, and asked if I could do another portrait of her mom. After asking a few questions, she’d said “I want it really really small though….like probably dime sized”. I thought she was asking the impossible, and told her I’d never accomplished a portrait that tiny. I do however, enjoy a challenge, so told her I would try my best with no guarantee that I would turn out. After experimenting with several different methods, and magnifiers, I finished my first miniature.
I had no idea, what this one piece, would bring my way….
