portrait painting for Grandpa's birthday

先週おじいちゃんの87歳のお誕生日をお祝いしました。

Last week we celebrated grandpa's 87th birthday!

でもばりばりの現役!行動力半端ないし、かっこいいし、とりあえず、若い。仕事もしてるし、乗馬も乗るだけじゃなくて、現在2級ライセンス取得のために猛特訓中。すごい・・・。

He's far from looking anything close to what one might imagine of an 87yo though - a very active, dapper, young-spirited person he is. How young? Well, he still works full time, and is still learning horse riding - not just riding, but he is currently training for some high level license certificate exam. He never stops to impress us.

そんなわけで、私からは颯爽と乗馬をするおじいちゃんの絵をプレゼントしました。おじいちゃんの絵を描くのは初めてでしたが上手に描けた!叔母は最初、写真だと思ってたらしい(笑)
おじいちゃんみたいにいつまでも元気でいられる人になるのが私の目標。まだまだずっと元気でいてね!!

So, from me was a portrait of him horse riding. This was the first time I've ever drawn him, but it turned out well. Auntie at first thought it was a photograph. haha... :)
Please stay the way you are now for much, much longer, grandpa! You are an inspiration.
