Pencil Portrait of my Grandmother Casber, born
in 1893.

She was such a neat person, and a very good artist.
I loved going to her house. It smelled of
oil paints, and turpentine and other 'artsy' things.
Besides the fact that she always had
green grapes just for me! 
I wonder what she would have to 
say about this portrait of her....
Over the years I have drawn and painted her
at least three times.
All of them from just a  small photograph that I
have of her, probably taken when she was
about 18 or 19 years of age.
On the back it says - written lovingly by my grandfather-
My Sweetheart, My Dear Wife, An Angel of Mercy.
