Judge Melba Crutcher

A friend called and asked if I would do his wife's portrait.  He sent a lot of newspaper clippings and photos.  It is 18x18 on stretched canvas. I used torn up magazine pages as well as copied with printer paper the newspaper clippings. 

She is a dear friend so it was a little harder to do than if she had been a stranger.

She is retired now from being Justice of the peace for Yoakum County, Plains TX. We have so many fun memories from getting a chicken leg at KFC  to eat on the way home to getting tickled at a funeral and couldn't stop laughing.  We quilted together for years also. Always laughter. I am so blessed she is my friend!
