What do portraits and “Derecho-geddon” (the severe storm system that ravaged a path from Chicago to the East Coast on June 29th) have in common? Nothing! Except that I drew this portrait as a thank you for the wonderful hospitality shown to us by good friends during the many days that we were without power. I want to officially thank Don & Arlene for our little “stay-cation”, and especially for Don’s killer Daiquiris. Your portrait is on its way.
