portrait finish

This is the portrait finished.  I will let it sit a few days and then look again with fresh eyes to make any adjustments.  I don't do too many of these pencil portraits  any more.  I raised my price to $500 a face just because I would rather paint.  But I do these for family wedding gifts and every grandchild and new neice and nephew gets a portrait done when they are three years old.  I like to wait till they are three and have formed a little personality.  Anyway this one is for one of my oldest friend's parents and since they have known me since I was in my twenties--they are family!
