John - Final

Here is John's finished portrait.

Monday, May 26, 2008


Well, I was hoping to particpate in the San Diego County Fair's art exhibition this summer. Since each participant is limited to two pieces in each category, I chose my portraits of Aidan and Cole and delivered them a couple of weeks ago. A jury selects the pieces that it wants shown, and, unfortunately, mine weren't among them. All I received was a form letter letting me know that my pieces were "eliminated". Ouch.

John - WIP 1

I decided for my next portrait to do my brother-in-law, who passed away a year ago. My sister-in-law has always been one of the first to see my drawings, and she has been very kind in her compliments, so I know this will mean a lot to her. I just hope there aren't too many tears when she sees it. I don't really like doing a portrait where the subject is looking directly at the viewer, but I only had so many photos to work with, and I want this to be a surprise. Unfortunately, I have a pretty low quality photo to work with.

Here's Mary's final portrait, with a week and a half to spare before Mother's Day.
