30 Days Challenge - Day 1

This is my 2 hour painting study today. Angelina Kowalczyk (Babcia), Cass' Grandmother. She lived to be 100, and is one on the sweetest Polish women I have ever met. She had a devotion to Mary her whole life and was at the Beatification and Canonization of St. Maximillian Kolbe. She is the reason that I met my wife, by her devotion to the Mary and Rosary and her prayers, she was a member of the MI since the 60's.
