    1. I just taped it and started watching it this week! I”d seen bits and pieces of it before but don’t know if I ever saw it all the way thru. Fun to see the scene that the still photo I used to draw this came from. (In the movie though, you see these darling cottage diamond-paned windows beind him that didn’t show in the photo I used… would have liked to incorporate one of those!) I wanted to draw a man wearing one of those darling caps and I’m so glad you recognize his likeness 🙂 Thanks, Laura!


  1. Those children drawings are amazing! I love John Wayne! I have a drawing of my son his preschool teacher drew of him. She used a picture of him in a cowboy hat I had sitting on my desk. It is one of my favorite gifts he has given me over the years. You have such a God given talent, Pam. Thanks for sharing with Thankful Thursdays..


    1. I’m so glad you like these, Lori! I wish my dad could have seen this drawing of Wayne… he loved him too! It was fun to draw mostly because I really wanted to draw one of those caps on an Irish looking man. 🙂 The drawing of your son sounds like a treasure! There’s something about those hats that just adds a lot of character to these, I think…and I can imagine how darling the cowboy hat. 🙂 Thank you, Lori!
