Sensitive, empathic portrait. Another winner.

Beautiful--love how the patterns in her blouse play off the lines in her face.

Joe, you do such delicious portraits. The perfect balance of crosshatch and pure line and open spaces. And damned if the art doesn't look exactly like the person drawn. A gift. You get better and better and better.

I haven't seen a bad Ciardiello yet.

Thanks, but trust me Dale, I've got flat files over stuffed with them.

Once again. I can only dream of that kind of freedom with the pen. Beautiful portrait Joe!
