Happy Birthday to my wonderful brother!

I love this painting of my brother -- and no he doesn't look like this
now.  (As a freelance writer the long hair had to go.) But the painting
(which he owns) is one he posed for.  I like the exuberance of my
brushstrokes in this.  

In between sittings I'm sure we were drinking strong coffee,
laughing our heads off, and perhaps arguing -- something we do
very well, because we can switch the argument on and off at a 
moment's notice, and we still love one another like very good

Happy Birthday Andrew.

Thank you Evelyn,

I did have so much fun painting it. My brother is a very
funny, and brilliant person. He is an amazing writer, and
we've worked together on lots of projects.
