Jean Sweet Sixteen by TeaPhotography Jean Sweet Sixteen by TeaPhotography
This is a photo of my Grandma Jean when she was just sixteen.
So, about 1935.

[ June 23rd, 1919 - March 22, 2012 ]

I just saw her on Feb. 26th, for the last time, when I took that recent trip to Tucson, and not even a month later she passed away...

Read more here:

I have several old photos of my Grandma, actually, and "Jean Sweet Sixteen" is one of my absolute favourites!

We JUST recently got a scanner, from a friend here who was going to sell it at a garage sale, the DAY after my Grandma passed... [life is strange sometimes]
which has made lots of things easier for us, including scanning old photos of Grandma, and other photos, [plus business stuff... ]

I only edited this slightly, to restore it just a bit- cause I wanted to keep it looking as original as possible-- and yet the original is faded somewhat, of course.
I feel I have maintained the balance.

I am fortunate that I have many photos of my grandma through the years, mostly with me, growing up. :aww:

She was there with, and for me, since the beginning, which isn't that easy, when you've never lived physically near by... but a lot of traveling was always involved.
Holidays, events, and taking trips... I'll always be grateful. :heart:

She was an amazing Grandmother and a dear, delightful friend.

I'm very tempted to ask you for the honor and priviledge of attempting to paint your grandmas 16 year old portrait in color. Please check my site and let me know if you would consider that.
