Grandma by chasestone Grandma by chasestone
Made this for a practice book illustration project, it was a good change of pace subject matter wise. Painted in photoshop

Edit: Just wanted to say thank you to everyone for your thoughtful comments and to everyone who featured this image elsewhere. And thank you to everyone who suggested this for a DD!

This gave me a knot in my stomach. Despite of, or maybe because of, the sensation of dread and nostalgia your artwork arose, it's beautifully done. Im gonna go hug someone now.

Very beautiful and endearing piece. There is a sweet symbolism of a grandmother and child looking back on what look like earth our home plant. I am also thoughtful of this piece, it could hold so many stories and meanings, is it a dark one of loss, some thing bitter sweet? or just simply something in wonderment and beauty?

This picture really made me stop and think. Great skin work on the grandma, beautiful lighting in the child's hair.
