Trading Portraits

After posting a few of my self-portraits on my Facebook page, the amazing sketcher and online friend France "Wagonized" Belleville-Van Stone asked if she could give my likeness a try.  Wow.

Undaunted, I foolishly asked if I could return the favor.  And, being the hedger-of-bets that I am, I sketched her twice in the hope I would get enough right in each sketch that they might possibly match the quality of France's effort, at least when remembered together.
