  1. These are really nice. I especially like the Morgan Freeman portrait. The likeness is very good. And how cool that you did a portrait from “True Grit”! I haven’t seen that movie yet, but hope to.

  2. feel free to link my website to yours, Stan… your sketch of me is on the opening page!! My thriller novel, Terminal Policy, continues to sell well on Amazon, etc… altho my publisher “suspended operations” a few months ago and shipped the remaining 1000 hardcover books to my garage!! So autographed hardcopies and my author-narrated CD and MP3 audiobooks are only available from my website….take a look! Love to see you in Monterey one of these days… Liam McCurry
