One of the paintings I'm so happy I created in 2022 is a portrait
of the wonderful portrait artist, Michael Gibson. Michael's 
drawings are beyond spectacular, and I wanted to honour him
with a portrait.

I began by drawing in charcoal, but if that once was, it no longer

video of Michael talking, with his permission, and that was a

I was over the moon happy when Michael said he liked it. 

Have a loving your life day.
