Beautiful! I thought they were photos when I saw the tiny thumbnails of this.
Thanks guys I appreciate the feedback. I'm a little nervous giving it to him after all that's happened. Sad I don't want to stir up hard feelings for him.
I'm sure he'll appreciate such nice work, though. I have a portrait of a pet of mine that had to be put to sleep and it just makes me recall the good times with him, not just the bad.
