Charcoal with white highlights on Strathmore Velet Gray Pastel Paper
Janita Mo in Charcoal
I met Janita in the library at Volda, Norway. She was just the kindest and most hospital person I have ever met. “I was a stranger and she took me in.” Before the day was over, she had driven me over to her village of Orsta some ten miles away, treated me to coffee and introduced me to her family. Following this they drove to historical sites and then back to Volda. It is rare that anyone will be this generous to a complete stranger. I wanted to do some simple, but nice thing for her so I drew her portrait which I hope to deliver in May.
