Mixing It Up In The Garden

How many people do you know that would be brave enough to request a caricature made up of their sister-in-law?

Apparently Carolyn is that brave. She wanted an illustration of her SIL (That's "Sister-in-law for you non-blogger types) sitting in a garden, wearing a garden apron, with a mixed drink in hand. I'm not particularly savvy when it comes to mixed drinks since I don't imbibe. So a martini was practically the only mixed drink I could come up with that I felt was easily recognizable.

You may remember Carolyn from an earlier, let's just say, interesting illustration that I did for her. If you haven't seen it you might enjoy checking it out.

Ooh Rick, I do love the ones where you colour them in right to the edges with flowers and things - did you manage to stay inside the lines?

You really captured her Rick! Very nice!

Thanks for your nice comment. I painted a truly awful painting last Saturday and have been beating myself up about it so your compliment came at a great time.

The OC fair is going well. I haven't been down there yet to see the show so I have no idea if I won anything or where my work was hung. I'm going this weekend though.
