Portraits

Jared 5" x 5" Graphite
Julia 5" x 5" Graphite


I recently drew these portraits, and have since been commissioned to draw a couple more. Maybe someday I'll be so busy drawing and painting that I'll be FORCED to quit my day job and just create art!

I love dreaming out loud in my blog!!

I couldn't draw myself out of a paper bag!

What more could I say that the other 3 commentors didn't, except, that I know who the 1st portrait ISN'T,(only cuz you are so awesome!!!!) And I have 2 confessions, actually one, but you knew that b4 you took me in, huh? But Only K, I swear!!! The girl one in my fam. She swore to keep the "secret", but I'd worry more about the dad than the mom in the sitch. I wish I could go thru this 4 u ... I would if I could. Glad your hubby is supportive, I'm sorry he doesnt understand. Who else knows of your dilemma? My oldest bro could probl'y help out tons. I'm gonna tell K that I ratted on myself so she can reply if she wants to.
Haven't heard from ya. Hope I didn't piss ya off.
C's school is on the web, I'll let ya know my U/N and P/W if ya wanna know it. I sure am proud of my boy. Can't take any of the credit, though, gotta talk to my bro's older, and younger blonde one mostly, my oreo cookie, too, for sure! I think they all had more to do with his upbringing than I did! I sure am grateful for all involved. He still never ceases to amaze me, and I'm his Ma! My Mom thinks how I deal w/him is nutty sometimes, but I know my kid. I sure do love him, though! I wanna be like him when I grow up!!!
SML - just for you, I am gonna give my ex-bosses wife your # in case she wants to commission u 4 Christmas, if that's ok. Call me the minute you read this, and I'll find out your answ.
PS - people are worried and love you and yours very much. Don't ever forget that!!! Sometimes while reflecting on my life, I'm glad all I had to go thru was beatings and names.... I'd not change a min of any of it. So very thankful for good friends, good jobs, nice teachers and an excellent family who hasn't let me down yet... wish I could say the same for them.... Wish I hadn't let them all down. They don't deserve it. Gotta go now.

Those are both really amazing. You should really find a way to do art full time.

Thanks for all your encouraging comments. I wish I could just quit working my office job and do art full time. My passion, for sure. But I'm so tired at the end of the day that it's hard to find the energy to give to art that I wish I could. It's a good subject for another post....

Okay, you're an amazing artist. I like to think I'm pretty artistic, but yeah - I couldn't come close to something like this. Bravo.
