  •  Gift a print to someone in the Navy or Barbershop Quartet

…for the love of ‘Glory‘…

[This one is mostly graphite pencil – to get that soft quality – with a touch of pen and ink.  It is one of my personal favorites.  Just quintessential for all girls who ever loved a horse…  and somehow, it reminds me of Shirley Temple, though it isn’t her… 🙂 ]

Since I drew this from a vintage film photo (John Wayne as an American Irishman), I thought I’d also include it  in this gallery as well as Memorable Movie Moments, as an example of a portrait  you might choose from a photo of a family someone not so famous to the world, but a star to you!   🙂

Love those old-fashioned caps!
