I could be so wrong yet in this the guy I see an Israeli... the shaven head (style?), the checking-you-out eyes, the stubborn jaw. Whoever he is, your work is wonderful.

That's a magnificent rendering with one very soft pencil!

tamar, i agree with you. the square, jagged cheeks are so tzabar. his eyes are so deep, so story-telling. you can totally feel his pain. i am so following this blog now.

Hi Carol,

Glad you liked my entry in Karin's challenge. Your blog is terrific, it's so much fun to "meet" through our artwork! Your drawings and sketches are a wonderful window into your world, thank you for sharing them. You'll inspire me to get back to my sketchbook... my view is much more rural than yours. Happy 2009!

Your work is wonderful! I really like the watercolor as well as the pencil drawing. I know this artist very well as he is my nephew! A kind, gentle, and very talented man with a loving heart. (Yes, he can also be stubborn!:) ) You did a beautiful job of painting him. Thanks!

The look on the face of John is captured amazingly and I compliment you on this! I am John's sister and I think you did a really good job at capturing his eyes. He does actually smile more than this though!!!! Nice work!
