Every Day in May #13 -My Husband










This drawing was quite a challenge, and my inner critic is still screaming at me for posting it.

I sketched my husband today while he was working on his computer, and he kept moving and changing his position. He even changed his glasses once while I was doing the drawing, but I asked him to put the first ones back on.

Clearly, the drawing definitely has issues, but I am trying to lighten up and not be so perfectionistic about every stinkin' thing, so here my drawings is- warts and all. (Though I an assure you HE doesn't have any warts!)

I have a great husband, and I love that I have been with him for almost 28 years now. We met when I was just eighteen and did a lot of growing up together along the way.

We have a great life together, and I am so grateful to have him as my life partner. He is funny, honest, loyal and dedicated. He is a great father to our daughter.

Today (and most every day,) I am grateful for my marriage to this wonderful guy.

It may not be what you had envisioned, but it's still a great portrait...and he sounds like the perfect mate.
