I gave one of my grandsons some paper and pencils the other day to try his hand at drawing. I told him, “We can learn together.” Unbeknownst to me, he decided I would be his first subject.
I have to admit, he got everything right; glasses, a little hair on my head, bald spot, some wrinkles, bloodshot eyes… It looks just like me!
It is not the first time I’ve been the chosen one for a drawing. After hearing my U.S. Coast Guard story, one of my little granddaughters caught me standing on the deck of my ship!
What an honor to be thought of enough to have a portrait drawn.
