Illustration Friday: Fortune

Today is my husband's birthday. He is closing in on 50, which is in its own way a little mindboggling. Actually, he is pretty laid back about it, for which we are all grateful. I feel pretty fortunate to have him around, even if it is Friday the 13th. *
My husband has the good fortune of being rather timeless. He looks the same now as he did when we met 14 years ago. I, on the other hand, bear little resemblance to the person I was then, at least outwardly. It's a good thing God looks at the heart. This is a drawing I did of my husband about 7 years ago, although it could have been done just yesterday.
He is always a good sport when it comes to posing for me. *

Nicely rendered, Ottoblotto! Happy Birthday to your sweetie. He looks as though he's enjoying his time in the sunshine. Tell him 50 is a cinch.

He looks like a man full of happiness and humor! Your work is really wonderful... there's such precision in your rendering, and you infuse real life into the character. Happy birthday to your DH... and onward to the next fifty years!
