Spring is finally getting here!!

Winter is finally gone I think, although I wouldn't be surprised with another freak snowstorm. haha This will probably be my last snow painting until the end of the year, but you never know, I may be inspired to paint snow when I am complaining about the summer heat.

Back to my painting, it is of 'Tabby Cat' who hangs out by my house, she was under a truck in my driveway staring out over the mound of snow. She was waiting for food and for me to shovel her a path so her dainty feet wouldn't have to touch the snow. I was happy to oblige.

I was inspired to do a portrait this week and chose to do a drawing of my Grandfather, aka 'Pop', from 1916. He was a very handsome man and only 19 in this picture. I haven't done a human portrait in awhile and would like to start doing more.

I filled out the census form and will mail it out today, something I have been putting off.

Well I better get going! Thanks for stopping by.

Kathy your artwork is sooo utterly fab! My husband and I love rats (in fact we met through rats. I'm English and he was my American penpal and we met through The Rat Fan Club) and I think your drawings are out of this world. I have just emailed my hubby to beg him to buy me your book! Keep up the good work.
