I haven't been able to finish any of the four things I am working on. I would love to have another one of my mixed media fossil painting posted before I lose my inspiration. I am also working with water-based inks trying one of Maxine Masterfields techniques but have had to put that aside also and I would love to do another charcoal drawing for the Wild Animal in Charcoal class at Wet Canvas. Most of all I would like to finish the portrait I am working on and hope the following quote will not easily refer to this portrait.
"Every time I paint a portrait I lose a friend".
John Singer Sargent,
We have a place in the country and after starting with one tom cat, two little females were left on my door step and now I have 8 cats that live on the roof top because they are afraid of the two Australian Heelers, that don't only herd the cattle but keep all of the cats on the roof. They only come down when they see that all is clear. This is becoming a problem being that the kittens are born on the roof tops and they will not let anyone come close to them.
I have no art work to post so I will post this photo I took on Saturday.
