sketch portrait of me

Please excuse me for being a bit of a braggert here. I just got back from a trip to Rome, and while there I had a street artist do my portrait. I have NEVER done this before, not even a silly characature. I don't consider myself a pretty woman. Cute, maybe, but not pretty.
Anyway, I saw that this man had real talent, as opposed to the many other street artists who were doing quick characatures for 5 euros. (waste of money!). I hired "Adriano" for 20 euros and he did a splendid job. We talked the entire time, and in the end, being the very sweet gentleman that he is, he refused payment and GAVE me the portrait. the whole story of this and a very long description of the trip is here (Heading off To Rome! Ciao, Bella! if you have too much time on your hands. But, for now, I wanted to show you how a person can make a remarkable likeness, in less than 20 minutes!

Oh that is so NEAT! That sound like an awesome trip, too.

Hun, I for one think your work is better. Heck I have it in my living room ;)

On a side note, you're a beautiful woman.

Stunning. You ARE a pretty woman, beautiful even.
