A Boy and His Cat

Was busy this weekend and didn't have time or energy to draw. Gasp!

I've been admiring the "real life" sketches of other artists and wanted to practice capturing a moving, wiggling subject. So this evening I followed Hubby around the house and recorded his activities (or lack thereof.) With Hubby I got Cheezburger also...fifteen pounds of warm, furry love.

Cheezburger: "Let me put my butt on your arm."

There is a definite progression in the drawing style from #1 to #4. I tried to capture tooooo many details at first. By #4 I was just trying to get down the essence of the scene.

Need to work on hands - too long, too short, to square-fingered. Toes look pretty good.

Speckus Mussupacus

Speckus Mussupacus, a new variety of spiderwort recently discovered in Lower Arkansas.


Woot! Proud of this. Almost worth sticking a watermark on.

I ran off the rails with the journal illustration for today, so I turned the page and started anew.

Hubby is such a prince and treats me like a princess.
