My Grandpa Adolph

My charcoal portrait My Grandpa Adolph is a memorial of my dear Grandfather. Adolph was a physics professor who died last year. Every time I visited him in his assisted living home, we would have interesting conversations about science and math, such as the new scientific discoveries he would read about online. A few months ago, I found a small 1970s photo of him working on his typewriter that I wanted to draw. Through drawing my grandfather, I hoped to show the seriousness that complemented his jokes and humor. Creating this piece also helped me overcome my grief. By expressing his charisma, I could share my feelings: love and pain associated with his death. My depiction of my grandfather symbolizes my love and remembrance for him and our intellectual conversations.
