Ken doctor/chef portrait

I was really close recently to go back to Sweden Gothenburg where I grew up, but for financial reason again I was not able to. I will have to just trust that my lord and savior will provide one day an opportunity to go back after almost 21 years. Here is a recent commission I just did for a family that wanted to give it as a gift. I am in the middle of now painting my new Bathroom so I better get back! See ya all later and as usual comments are always welcomed :)

Grandpa Baseball Fan split in half

How are you all I know I have not been that active on here, but I do post more regulars on my Facebook fan page  and you can always call me any time at 727-422-0668. Here is a quick 11-14 pen and ink water color and pen and ink of a Grandpa that has two grandchildren on two different teams. This is what the client wanted:
"I would like a  B&W caricature of the gentleman in the photos. He’s been watching high school baseball games with me for the past four years and I’d like to give him a drawing  as a going away gift. He has two grandsons that play for two different teams thus the two hats, Braden River and Manatee. I’d like to do something with him watching a baseball game with two hats or pendants or whatever you would like to do but include both teams. I’d like something simple, on the lines of what you do at live events, which I really like."
I used the thick paper off the large printer paper a Kinkos and I thought is would work good with the water color, but it did not soak in right I should have the line work printed onto water color paper. Ohh well !

I hope you all have a Blessed Sunday, I am now off to a Jewish Festival in Tampa (The same client as the Slide show project I did not to long ago)
