Portraits R Us

I've been working on a lot of things since I last posted.
One project I've been focusing on lately is a series of portraits of Marines-- members of VMM 263, the first Osprey squadron to deploy to the War on Terror.

Every time I do a portrait, I swear I'll never do another!

They are quite difficult, but when they work out, they are satisfying. I guess that's why I always end up doing another...

My wife made a cake and I decorated it-- I took some fondant and gum paste, and formed it into Fireman Sam!

Jack loved it, of course, and we all enjoyed eating it.

Here is the demise of Fireman Sam:

Fireman Sam sure saved the day.
