Hilda Bromerloh Kestler

Photo Of Hilda Kestler

I painted the portrait of My grandmother Hilda Kestler in 1984. I used a black and white photo I had taken of her in 1960 the year before she died,which was February 26,1961. This is the grandmother that was a seamstress, that  I spoke of in the previous blog. I’m glad I took this photo of her sewing. It is one of the few portrait photos of her in her later life. The painting is 18″ x 22″. I began with a large ink line drawing on acetate, which I copied on a copy machine. I glued the drawing on cardboard and painted it with water based paint.
