Lillice Long's 80th Birthday Gift

Tim's Grandmother, Lillice , turned 80 this past weekend. It was my pleasure to draw a portrait of Lillice and her late husband , Ted, for her birthday gift! This was a complete surprise to her so I worked from some old photos that were pretty soft and difficult to work from. However it was a perfect opportunity to grow in my skills as a portrait artist. Im hoping to "borrow" the portrait back for my show in  May of 2010.

Hunter- Portraits

 I had the pleasure of drawing all four children for Mrs. Hunter for her Mothers Day gift. I worked in  a very concentrated amount of time ,three week's for all four portraits. It was interesting to notice the similarities in each one of their faces to each other. This is my most recent portrait job. I'm looking forward to drawing a portrait of all four children together soon.
