Hello, Everyone

My name, is William Darnell Sr. I'm a retired carpenter, and a father of 5 grown children, 4 boys, and a beautiful daughter. My wife's passed away, 13 yrs now, so that makes me, a widower. My oldest, a son, is passed as well. I also have 6 grandchildren, 4 boys, and 2 beautiful granddaughter's. I've been writing poetry for around 20 yrs. My inspiration's God, my 7th grade English teacher, and my woodshop teacher. The greatest thing I have ever done, was married my wife, may she rest in peace, and the children she has given us. I was supposed to write a story of a tragedy that has happened to my family. But, having some difficulties. So, I'm just going to come right out and tell you. Two of my children had been raped, by a family member as some or maybe most of you might well know. My late wife's little brother done this. I hold myself responsible, most say, it wasn't my fault and I get that. But, the truth is, we knew. more to come... And, for this reason alone, that we knew, I hold responsible. I, as a father, husband, protector, and a man should have been assertive, regardless of my wife's feelings, having our children's best interest at mind, and said no, absolutely not! Ok, this is a Bio, an entry as to who I am, a briefing. I'll carry this story over to my blog. Anyways, that's me!

Best of Wishes,

William


A Drawing of: Frank Sinatra

Blog Posted:8/30/2021 9:31:00 PM

Frank Sinatra, and I believe I captured him well?

Again, a 4-1/2hr draw here, and I was in bliss here. But, of course, my cat, Mischief,

had to sit in my lap as well and watched as I was drawing.

That was

the first time he has ever done this, he was so attentive in watching me. He would look up at me every so often as if he was giving me approval. Such character in him. 

Well, my friends, enjoy! 

Best of Wishes,

William

Yes, I believe he did approve of me both drawing and the portrait of Frank. But, of course, he's getting older, four now, so we are accustomed to each other. He's been a rescue since he was five weeks!

Thank you, Tom! I value your sentiments and appreciate your presence in my life as well. But, I have to say here, since I've picked the pencil back up seven, eight months ago, my portfolio has grown rather large. It's helping me find a bit of me that has been gone for a very long time. Take care, my friend, and thanks again for the visit and comment. Best of Wishes, William
