11 x 14 graphite pencil on Bristol Smooth paper - this is a commissioned drawing. The woman in this drawing is the man's mother. Now I know what you are thinking? WHAT? It's true. The woman passed away when the man was just a baby. He was adopted, he doesn't have any photos with his birth mom. I wanted to create a special drawing. More to come soon!

Wow Rick I love this thoughtful piece of loving art. In my family we also have several adoption children who have all grown up now

Artist Reply: Thank you! This is very powerful, very emotional. This came about by this man's adoptive mom who asked me to take her out of her son's wedding picture and draw his birth mom in her place. I am honored to have been asked to draw this special portrait.
