"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 now have some Christmas cards at "My Favorite Things" on the main street in New Franklin, MO. If you are in the area, please take time to visit this wonderful shop and see what unique gifts they have to offer.
