Family gatherings are always festive, and with my in-laws I’m never quite sure what activities will ensue. At a recent get-together haircutting became the theme of the night and the warm familial bonds and smiles were captured on film. I’ve been determined to translate one snapshot into a hooked rug design, complete with a barbershop stripe border. The scissors are obscured from view in this rendition and I haven’t decided how to correct that yet. If only drawing came naturally to me. Sigh.
