My handsome son Adam.

The other night, taking a break from the children's book I'm working on, I did a portrait of my son Adam! Another sample for my Etsy shop.

The theme this week at Illustration Friday is "Natural". I submitted a color sketch I did last year at a farmer's market in Dover, NH. I sketch all the time when I'm out, especially when I'm sitting at a concert or listening to a talk.
