Self Portrait

We only have a few portraits in the family collection.  Marilu painted this self portrait in the late 1950s   I think she had a special talent for capturing the human expression as seen in her drawings in charcoal and pencil.  She drew all of her children many times for her annual Christmas Cards.  The Christmas Cards are where she really shines , in my opinion.  These are all displayed in the "Illustrations" Section.
