"Elizabeth Lewis 100th birthday in this life"

Pencils and french chalk on A4
Elizabeth..Aged 100 years this year, and this is the ONLY existing image of her .
Elizabeth enthralled me with her stories from back in 1920 when "posh" people used to get their portrait done and how she never even had a photo taken until the late 1960's AMAZING stories and a living time capsule....

Wonderful work ..Its great when you can sit down and talk to some of the older family members , I know I struggled  to understand how my grandparents born between 1882 and 1898  managed with out electric lights and cars,,  my children were confused on how you could do anything in my days before there were computers  and my grandchildren don't believe people  of their parents  age group  didn't always have mobile phones and mobile internet..
