I was moved...

Some good friends of mine adopted a newborn baby a year ago. I was looking through photos that celebrate their adoption finalization which were posted on facebook and fell in love with one in particular. Knowing that their son's first birthday was rolling around, I decided to see if I could draw a person, so I started sketching and at first, I have to admit I was a little intimidated about drawing a person. As the drawing took form, I began to see a strong likeness to the original photo. After working on this one for quite a while, I finally finished. Another sketch completed. I gave the gift last week. So, not only does this sketch commemorate a wonderful event in a family's life, it also marks the first sketch of a real person for me. What's next??
