"Lucy's Wedding Day -- 1937" is a portrait of this artist's Mother taken on her wedding day in 1937.

The original photo used in this work was in bad condition, with many years of wear and abuse, including sections missing, as well as pieces of old cellophene tape holding parts together.

The photo includes both parents and as a future project, my Dad's portion of the photo will be also done in pen and ink.

This study in pen and ink techniques was completed in September 2006.

Extensive use of stippling detail work was used to create a dramatic finished portrait of "Lucy's Wedding Day -- 1937".

The work took approximately 12 hours to complete and measures about 8 x 10 inches on an 11 x 14 background.
