    Okay, Photo probably doesn't do it justice, but this is a sketch my wife did 32 years ago. I wanted it then, but was in the military, and wife gave it to her mother before I got it.
    Yeah, I was upset about it. Well, finally, yesterday, MIL stated that doesn't have a place for it in her new home, so she asked me if I wanted it. Duh.
    Obviously, this gets a primo location in my home office!!

    That's the truth. When she is in the mood to draw, she can knock them out.

    But who exactly is the hottie in the sketch?
    If that's a self portrait by your wife, your a lucky man!
    If that's something she was just able to imagine, that's a talented lady! (well she's talented anyway, I've never moved beyond stick figures myself!)

    It was actually a photograph she saw in a cigarette ad when we were at the doctor's one day, and she went home and drew it from memory over the next week.

    Heh. I'll ask her. Here's one she did back in the mid eighties. Full size poster board.

    She wants to know what you want and the size, as well as a fee discussion, which we could do via PM.

    Does she draw animals? Specifically wolves by any chance?

    She does. She's a big fan of Native American things and loves wolves.

    Still settling in, and her art has gotten significantly better than it was when younger.
    Somewhere we have more of her art. We just haven't gotten to it yet.

    I'd like to see some that you think I might be interested in, and I'd be glad to get a commissioned work done sometime.

    If you have a pic that you want drawn, let me know the size you want of it, and I'll give her the offer and the picture. I'll PM you my email.

    Thanks notdku. She has, as I've said, gotten much better. The poster of David Lee Roth she did? She turned down $800 in 1987.
