Well, I haven’t been around in a dog’s age. My health has been very poor and I spent a month in the hospital in July and getting nursing care and IVs for months before and after… but here I am! I finally got the large drawing done for a friend. His wife lost her cat of 20 years and we are surprising her with this. It was on my brain wanting to get done the whole time I wasn’t able to do it. But just as soon as I could, I Jerry rigged the most comical set up to do my art in bed. And I got it done in two days. I’m pleased -it’s been over 20 years since I’ve used charcoal. I was just so thrilled to be doing art. I did put some finishing touches on a big modern piece a few weeks ago before my health took a turn again. I had a real fight with sepsis, so maybe I’ll show that over in the abstract section. Even if I got up for two or three minutes at a time I would do something and then I would stare at it from bed. And you can just imagine that I was making adjustments the whole time in my head/ on my phone art app ! And even though it took a long time, it was so worth it. Every time I worked on a piece I went to bed with a smile on my face. At one point I just so wanted to touch the canvas again. Anyways, I hope you like this one. There’s a little pastel for the green eyes. Otherwise it’s just straight charcoal or vine charcoal.
