A Portrait of My Mother

“Portrait of Hazel”

Hazel Wagner, my mom, lived to be age 92. She died recently. This drawing is my celebration of her life.

Inked here are 92 lines, each line considered for the happenings of a year in her life, a color chosen to represent. Each line sending ripples and waves across a lifetime. All 92 lines entwining and melding together into the full expansive life Hazel lived.
