At ArtBeat this year there was a young woman, Angela DeCarlis, doing pencil portraits.
Of course, I wanted to get one done of Jacoby and me.
She sketched me first, and while we waited Jake had a lot of attention from passersby.
Once she had me down, she had me pose with Jake.
She took these photos of me and Jake while we were sitting. I’m showing off our ArtBeat tags.
If Jake looks a little grumpy on my lap, it’s because he just really wanted to back in his stroller. That’s his safe zone, his territory – and also the secret to how I’m able to go to places like ArtBeat with him. As long as he’s got his stroller, he’s happy.
And here’s how our portrait turned out! I kind of wish I was smiling…but other than that, it’s pretty dead-on. What do you think?
