Michael Jackson by Diane

Two weeks ago we lost Michael Jackson and it is time for you to see our tribute to the King of Pop. Monica asked Kim's sister to create a picture of Michael Jackson that would remind us of our love and respect for Michael. Monica's one request was that Michael be dressed in a military uniform that we saw him in for a time. Diane agreed to the challenge but decided to use artistic license in her representation.

Those of you who know of Diane or have met Diane know that she is a very special person and one of the sweetest persons on the earth. Money has no value to her so Monica is paying Diane with a pop and candy bar for her time and effort to create the Michael tribute. Diane has accepted this payment and showed her approval with widely opened eyes and the unique sound of "yuuummm" that only Diane can make.

Now back to the picture, Tuesday night Diane called Kim to say that the drawing is completed but that she has taken some artistic license with the picture. She explains that Michael is in the military suit as requested but the face represents the "Beat It" years. She also added that she preferred the more brown skinned Michael to the lighter skinned Michael so there is more color to his skin as well.

We hope that you like the picture. I know that there is no way that I could have created a picture this good if I had tried. I LOVE the finished product!
