I’m glad you included the portrait. The likeness is actually there. No comment on your skill, just that portraits would have to be the toughest. You did a nice job on the John Wayne portrait, so you’re getting pretty good at getting the likeness down.

I bet he likes it. Most of it would be “the thought that counts” thing. But your work here is very good Earl. Looks true to the pic you show.
