The list of volunteers was growing. I offered to do portraits for free for family and friends. All they had to do was supply me with an appropriate picture that I could work from. I got what I asked for.

While flipping through the many sheets of models containing dogs, dogs, and more dogs, people, places and things, I settled on this one. Only.....I was feeling a little bored at the time, restless and silly. A bad combination in an artist apparently working on a wedding portrait. I accidentally put the dress and earring on him and the shirt on her. Darn it!

I inverted the picture as to not disclose the truly true identity of the people. The original is in graphite on white paper. I think though, I like this version even better! I may try it in white on black now!

That's awesome! You continue to amaze me!

Gotta ask. . .I remember your post about the jeans--that's not you and Mr. P is it? Hehe

It's definately not Mr. P and I. I only like to humiliate other people, not myself when I can help it. I do that enough accidentally!

I have to admit, I did a double take looking at the picture. But I like it. Want to do mine? hee hee(Although, I'm not sure Ches would appreciate wearing my dress. Oh well).

Hope to see more pics of when you're bored, restless, and silly. :)

lol! You are such a zany nut, I love it! (That is a compliment by the way, and I hope you take it as such) :) Great drawing, and I kinda like the inverted effect, it's pretty cool.

I guess we know who wears the pants in that family.

Hey Perp!
Just wanted to let you know that we are rooting for the Sens here! We have NO love for the Devils.

They may have pulled off the game yesterday, but we have faith that Ottawa will put them on the putting green in no time!

If only I had such faith that we will beat San Jose. I am nervous, but have faith. I just hope that all the $$$ we are shelling out for game 5 tickets won't be to watch US getting sent to the putting greens!

Wish us luck! Go Wings & Sens!

Carole said...

LOOK OUT Buffalo! The Sens are on the move! You guys must be pretty excited!
