Day 9 1/2 of 21 - Father & Son

©Kathleen Rietz
More Daddy...
I drew again because I may have limited access to my computer for a few days. Plus....I just wanted to work on daddies.. : )

The focus in a lot of my work is diversity and creating positive role models.

  6. This is a wonderful piece, Kate. Go to color on this one please? I love the expressions and the lil' boy's pinky finger curling up. Nice job catching the razor in mid-air like the boy's interrupting the shaving, but the dad doesn't mind one bit. Very sweet.
