   Carbon Pencil Portraits

I have done many portraits like these that hang at the Greenwood Baptist Church north of Houston in Humble Texas. They are portraits of preachers that have preached in the Annual Bible Conference over the past 50 years. I started these portraits for the church in 1975. There are over 25 of them now!

  Tiffany Cassidy pencil sketch. She is probably all grown up now!
