I drew this picture of them for my brother from two separate black and white photos I joined in Photo Shop.
"To the Hunt" colored pencil, watercolor, ink 2014
I just have to add these next two photos from my Mom's album. I love old clothes. I'm sure that DeeDee and her friends thought they were the grandest in their latest fashion. How we laugh looking back, and yet how charming.
DeeDee and her cousin Lulie
But, my all time favorite is this one.
DeeDee and Lulie - bathing beauties
I asked DeeDee if she had trouble swimming in all that fabric. She just laughed and told me that no one knew how to swim. They were there to get some sun and attract the boys.
Well, I guess times haven't changed so much. Girls are still luring the guys, and the guys would still rather be hunting and fishing.
I was so blessed to have my grand parents live with us when I was growing up. They taught us kindness, service, and respect for our elders. I wish more families could experience such a blessing.
I hope y'all have a very blessed day,
