I've been dying to show this off!

My newest "if-the-house-were-burning-down-I'd-save-this-first" possession! Isn't this portrait of my son amazing?

I've known the artist, Andy Bartos, through etsy for a while. I already knew that (as well as being a complete sweetheart) Andy was tremendously talented . I've long admired his work on etsy, and was lucky enough to own one of his prints and some notecards already. 

But when I opened this - well, it brought tears to my eyes! The level of detail and the likeness are just stunning. This is the original photo I sent if you want to judge for yourself -
You can see more of Andy's work in his etsy shop and he also has his own website.
