Did it My Way

Sinatra (post2)Sinatra (post)

Drew Frank Sinatra for Mom back in 2002.  I loved that SHE loved it!  Mom passed in ’07 and Frank has been in my garage since.  Friend and fellow Blogger, AnnMarie, inadvertently reminded me of this piece, so I pulled it out, dusted it off and am posting it for her.  Stop by and check out her awesome poetry and art at Ann Together.

Pencil and chalk on toned paper.

  1. This is a wonderful portrait! I have a hard time getting a natural looking smile in portrait drawings. You’ve captured a lively, jolly expression that really feels right. Great work.

    I am sorry about the loss of your mom. I am glad she loved this drawing so much, and I can certainly see why.

    • Hi Jenna, thank you for you kind words.
      Ya know, my artistic style has changed so much since ’02 and I think that if I were to draw that same thing again it would be completely different. Better or worse, I’m not really sure but definitely different.


  2. This is scary – you know who I’ve been listening to all morning and he’s singing to me right now – yup – old blue eyes! Terrific portrait!
    I was so excited when I saw Frank’s portrait while listening to the Crooner himself – I didn’t read your post first. Gosh, I just read the text below the image. You’re too kind – thank you, Leslie. 🙂
    I know how much your mom must have appreciated this special gift from her talented daughter.
    ps I know it’s late, but I am sorry for your loss. Mothers are irreplaceable – but they do manage to cling inside their children’s hearts really well. 🙂
