Il est bon de retrouver tes oeuvres après plus de 6 semaines d'absence... Je rentre tout juste des Philippines...
Un dessin magnifique et un superbe hommage à ton papa chéri à qui j'adresse un très joyeux anniversaire.
Un énorme bisou à mon amie Diana qui m'a terriblement manquée.

Happy birthday to your dad - what a gorgeous wee boy he was! I love photos from way back then - the sepia tones and the way they posed had something wonderful that today's digital photography for all its bells and whistles just can't compete with. A great illustration of photo too - am sure he'll be so delighted with it!

Lovely painting and great inspirational photo. I have a similar one of one of my female cousins. Maybe I'll try to paint from it.
