I just found your blog through a link on Vixen Vintage.
Your sketches, photographs and even their descriptions are simply amazing. You've inspired me to get out my sketchbook again. Thank you so much!

Oh my gosh - these are spectacular! I loved the older woman looking out the train window, with a permanent smile on her face. Did you, by any chance, show it to her when you were done? She would have been so thrilled I'm sure! I love how you said all the older women dress so beautifully in Europe. I love everything and do hope some of them become paintings! Your talent never ceases to amaze me!... Love, Mommy
