Can I Brag for a Second?!

David won second place in a national contest for this charcoal he did of yours truly (check it out here) . I came home from work one day to see that he had started & finished this piece from a picture he took of me a couple years ago & just loved it immediately.

David's also got some new stuff up on his website that's fantastic (if I do say so myself). I'm really loving this one:
