We took a lot of photos while at the Houston zoo. I combined several to come up with this drawing for Creating Grand Memories.

My grandniece. I managed to finish this drawing while riding in an airplane. An unusually calm and smooth flight.

Leslie

French-American dancer and actress Leslie Caron.

I was thinking of a strong line running through the middle with just enough thinner detail to identify the person. I think the center lines could have been thicker; could have been fewer thin lines.

People have asked how I draw on an iPad. Here is a brief explanation:

Palm Tree

Sunday, June 16th, 2019

I was driving in traffic and saw a landscape company truck with a logo of a tree with big giant leaves. The leaves looked like hands to me.  When I got home  I sketched this out on my iPad.

Mary Kornman

Sunday, June 9th, 2019

I was watching an old John Wayne movie and the girl-interest was Mary Kornman. I looked her up and discovered she had been one of the Little Rascals of The Our Gang series. I found a photo of her I thought was precious and decided to draw her.

Rhoda

Sunday, April 14th, 2019

My great great grandmother.

Rhoda Ann Hardin Shaw, was born April, 1828, in Walton County, Georgia, descended from the French Huguenot family of Hardouin, who fled into Ireland from religious persecutions, later settling in America in the state of Delaware. Henry Hardin, Rhoda’s grandfather, moved to Georgia. Her father, Benjamin, married Elizabeth Hearne, settling in Walton County, Georgia but afterwards moved into northwest Georgia among the Cherokee Indians, and settled on the Chickamauga.

In May, 1844, Rhoda Ann married William P. Shaw, and settled near Lafayette on the east side of Pigeon Mountain. In 1800, they moved to Franklin County Alabama where in 1886 her husband died. In 1891 she went to Fouke, Arkansas to make her home with a son and afterward went to Fannin County, Texas, to live with her children there. She died in Texas April 8, 1894.

Louise

This is Louise Brooks. She was an actress in the 1920s and 30s. A true “flapper girl.“ She helped popularize the bob hairstyle. Apparently, she was something of a hedonist. But I didn’t draw her because of all that. I just thought she was pretty.
