This is a portion of a picture I drew when I was a kid I named Ombre.
It was done in oil and wasn't finished because I put it away to give it time to dry.
When I came home from school one day I was shocked to see it framed on the wall.

My Dad who liked to shock me, stood there laughing as he saw my face change.
I asked him why he did this and he said cause he liked it. lol
These are the kind of good memories I have of my Family.
They were always unpredictable.

Anyway a result I never did finish it and this is the way it hangs to this day.
I look at it today and think to myself things haven't changed much.
My Ombre is still in style with his earring and cigarette lol

My husband took pictures of him and I asked him why and he said because he likes it.
So I said ok I can put a cross section of him on my blog.
I have so many pictures I started that wait patiently to be finished.
Many I gave away and now have to catch up to make some for myself to leave as memories
for my kids.
And why not?
Hope every one is enjoying the summer. The weather is great!!!

You did a great job on Ombre! I love the story you shared with us. Maybe sometimes things are meant to be unfinished. He looks perfect to me. Love the gold earring. :)

Great picture! I can see your curiosity to the object.
Isn't it too hot at your place? Take care.
