Continuing Hunt 483 on Nick's Birthday!

Sketching in the big book here at my computer, using the facetime camera on my iMac like a mirror for my self portrait sketch.  The idea was not to look so intense.  Usually the concentrating makes the artist look way to serious.  The tilt of the head was to make it more lighthearted.  It just looks lopsided!  The tool was the usual Micron, this one the sepia/brown 005.

Number 5, self portrait - maybe it needed my reading glasses
Number 6, something to drink - I'm getting a bit addicted to these V-8 drinks.

Today is our grandson-in-law's birthday.

Happy, Happy Birthday, Nick! 

He is in Kentucky in his last semester of college getting a degree in engineering.  Yay!  Our granddaughter Christy,  Nick's wife, will graduate as well in engineering.  Nice!   We hope to go to graduation in May.   It will be fun to see the Kentucky families!

I recognized you right off the bat.

Jennifer Rose, thanks, I'll pass the wishes to Nick.

Bag Blog, doing a self portrait is about as bad as having a photo taken. Well worse I guess as I concentrated on all the wrinkles trying to decide which fifty to leave out! Gene is like his mom,not many wrinkles. I am like a prune. Oh well, can't change my ancestors!
