My Beloved Grandmother, Gülten Örstan

One week ago today my grandmother passed away. I was unable to attend her funeral (it was very far away, I never would have made it in time), so I spent that afternoon drawing her picture.


This photograph was taken in 1995 when she was 67. This is how I will always remember her.


She was an amazing woman and an absolutely wonderful grandmother. I will miss her dearly.
