Dona Canô: window to the memories

Claudionor Viana Teles Velloso, or Dona Canô, is a 103-year-old beloved lady and mother of the famous Brazilian artists Caetano Veloso e Maria Bethânia. She's so charismatic that became a personality by herself and not only for being their mother.

Velloso's family photos were googled. Background by Smoko-Stock (deviantArt). The text is actually excerpts from the lyrics of the song Dona Canô you can hear by clicking below.

  6. Dona Cano has many happy memories and is looking out of her window so optimistically at 103 that I'm sure she will enjoy what time is left to her.

  16. Hi Christine, Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. I did sketch the face myself. I love to draw, especially faces and then I incorporated the face into the digital background.
    Next month I will be taking an online class with Katie Kendricks and will be focusing on painting, and textures using acrylics, and mixed media.
    I'll share what I'm up to on my blog. Hope you stop by!
