"Cuddle Time"

This is the daughter of a close friend of mine. Mattie loves all animals and her cat is no exception.






This piece was the first western graphite I completed. My intention had been to do a watercolor from the reference photo I had taken in Fort Worth, TX.

However, as I was drawing the layout, I went into what I like to call my "creative zone" where I was oblivious to my surroundings. By the time I "woke up" I realized I was on to something and I went on to complete the piece as a graphite.

Since that day my medium of choice has become the simple pencil.







I want to thank all the kind folks I met this summer during the numerous shows and events I attended. You have inspired me and reminded me how blessed I am to be able to do something I love so much and have it touch so many lives!
