Florence Laikind Nelson -- Drawings
J. I. Nelson, 2008
Unmounted, mostly 24 x 18".
There are errors of proportion in these student drawings, but it's fun to look beyond them and see what the artist saw.  Charcoal  in hand, Mom actually could decide, and put lines on paper that could not be erased or painted over later.

Young Man Alert - Portrait (10x8 in)  Spoken for - Conny & Hans, Germany.

 My mother painted many figures -- a family having fun at the pool, people in a museum, groups of women touring and tramping in exotic places, women looking glamorous.  The direct gaze and resolved individuality of this portrait are atypical for her.
