Grayson


Pencil on archival paper, 9" x 12"
Not for sale


Grayson, our six-week old grandson, came to visit us over the weekend--his first big trip away from home. His great grandmother, aged 90, got to hold him--a special moment. He's beginning to smile now, so of course we all made fools of ourselves trying to coax a grin.

He met other family members, including his great aunt, at brunch on Sunday, and we all made over him again. He didn't seem too impressed--slept through most of it.



Grayson with grandma Brenda and great grandma Reta.

Beautiful little fellow. Grayson's sweet mouth and hairstyle are wonderful! I can tell the artist has a crush on the little guy.

What a sweet baby and a lovely drawing of him! He has got a great head full of hair too. What a wonderful time, thanks for sharing.

Thank you, Egretta. Yes, very memorable for us that his great grandmother met Grayson.

Thanks, Shirley. Yeah, I'm pretty crazy about him. :)

I tried to comment on your latest blog post, but Google won't let me--don't know what's wrong. Anyway, nice work!

a beautiful portrait of your grandchild Don and the expressions on everyone's face in the photograph are just amazing... each soul in its own state yet connected... very touching...

Don Gray said...

Thanks, Susan. How about that thick hair? :)

This beautiful drawing has such an "Old World" feel to it, as if done in silverpoint instead of graphite. Lovely child. Loving art.
