These two pictures were my return to the time of pastels and pen and ink. Portraits are fun, and both of these pieces brought back the memories of my days in colege doing portraits .The sailor shows the harshness of the days at sea. Pehaps a poor catch or problems at home the time he stepped off the boat he was thinking hard. Thus the "sailors lament."
"Giddy up" was the old cowboy still good enugh to saddle up and go, with lots of stories to share with his compadres. Old cowboys just ride on and all have tales to tell. Don't we all wish we could saddle up
Have a great weekend.
