A love of portraits

These morning journal portrait sketches make me happy.
What is wonderful is looking at a person's face, and then
recreating it with marker, essentially pen and ink. It
is great practice.

I also love that as the people come alive on the page
in front of me, I start thinking about them, and wondering
how they're doing. I don't know this man, but I hope
he is having a wonderful life.

Have a loving your life day.
