Congratulations! I know how proud you must be. My son graduates from UCLA in a few weeks with high honors and will start studying to take the LSat's in Sept.
oh, btw, your boy is quite handsome.. a fine portrait!

The portrait is wonderful. I like it much better than the last one.

His skin tone is perfect. *lol*

Being a public defender in DeKalb County will be a great beginning for him. He'll learn to stay on his toes while observing and avoiding the county political hot beds.

This will be a nicy memory from this special day...with the soft and detailed work.

I'm so glad you included the big version of this so I could look at it full size. It really is fabulous. Congratulations to your son. You both must be very proud.

You must be schepping naches like crzee! No doubt I will see your boy on TV. They get lots of face time on the local networks down here.
