One thing that's great about caricaturing is that it's such a hoot for ANY AGE birthday celebration. This one was an especially epicurean 60th...a beloved chef with his big glass of red wine (which is definitely more robust to draw than white wine!)

This was the prosciutto slicer on hand!
My spot was in front of a nice warm fire, which was very comforting
since the temperature outside was brutally cold.
The guests sat happily and chatted with me while I drew them, to the strains of opera coming from the stereo...here are a few:
Thank you for having me and happy birthday, Oreste!!!
