Blessed to Be A Blessing

I recently got a request to do a drawing of this gentleman who recently suddenly passed away. I learned that he loved his family dearly….and that he was recognized as a sharp dresser.  I wanted to capture that in this drawing. 

Requests for these ‘memorial’ type drawings have become a growing and important way that I am blessed to share my abilities.  Feeling grateful for the gift … and honored that I am trusted to share it with the others.💕

Farewell President Obama

I thought I’d revisit this familiar face. The first real portrait I ever drew, 3 years ago, was from a photo of Obama back in the early days of the presidency. It’s always fun to compare old drawings to recent ones.

It’s so funny – people asked me, “Why’d you choose him to draw?”  When I did a recent drawing of Trump (see previous post)’ people asked me, “Why’d you draw him?”  Haha!  Can’t please everyone… ‘ain’t even trying to’.

Humanity … its beauty, love, sorrow, joy, and all things associated with life as we experience it; that is what I try to capture in my drawings… that is why I drew ‘him‘.

Peace and Love to you.💛
