A blogger messaged me, asking me to do a portrait. A portrait of a boy, who died last August. Her son’s best friend.
He was 17-years-old and was swimming in the river with his friends. He slipped under the water and never resurfaced. My friend showed me a couple of tribute videos and one happened to be the 911 call. It was his father, one of the 911 operators, who received the call that his son was missing. His son’s body was found, almost a week later.
I know I made a wish 3 months ago, to be a really good portrait artist. The kind that people would seek out to have portraits done. Well, I must say I didn’t expect it to happen this fast. 🙂
