I started a home portrait commission for a combination birthday/anniversary gift last weekend and here is the pencil up. The buyer’s parents are selling her childhood home and she wants to provide them with a memorable gift of their beloved house. The large tree in front has a wonderful little ceramic man’s nose, mouth, and eyes attached to it and I am to add some spring daffodils off to the right. I have started the inking, but am waiting until she gets back to me with some specifics before I can finish. It is a surprise gift and the photos are limited because she live too far away to get more.
