Detail from a recent pencil portrait. I didn't do the background in black, thought it would be too
overpowering in many ways. It ended up being an early Father's Day gift for the client's husband.
I took the portrait photo on a dark and rainy morning, the lighting is not the best. This
portrait was 11 by 14 inches. I held my breath when I mailed it to
Connecticut, insured it and hoped it would arrive intact.
It was mailed USPS and did not arrive on the day that was expected. I tracked it
down and found out it was four miles from the client. She called this local P.O. and the
postal worked checked and told her, "Yes, it's was sitting there in the back." It should have
been delivered three days previously. Next time I will try my luck
