Family Day and drawing with my bro

This is Family Day weekend in Ontario.  Monday
is a holiday -- so it's a three day weekend.
Last night I was lucky enough to visit with my brother
Andrew, and his wife, my good friend, Lina.  I
did this fast sketch of my brother on the iPad.  (He is
much better looking than this), then Andrew took
a whirl at it, and drew me.  My brother is very
talented.  He's an artist like me, and
now is mainly a writer.  He also used to be host of a
TV show interviewing artists around the nation's capital,
Ottawa.

I have always been a painter, but written
professionally too, and been a corporate magazine
and a web editor.  So the two of us have worked
together from time to time at a wide variety of
projects.  We share a similar sense of humour,
and have a lot of fun when the four of us (Andrew
and Lina, and me and Steven) get together.

I hope you enjoy our family drawings from yesterday.

Have a making-art-with-your-family day

Hi Marcia,

Thanks so much. He is a good looking guy. And a nice and funny guy.

Love,

Barbara

Hi See Dean,

He is better looking than this. We were joking today that he's not touring now -- because he is also a musician and was in a number of groups.
