My Cat Portrait

Yeah for me!  Today I completed my cat portrait.  It is 8 by 10 inches and was drawn with pencils.  There is something about a pencil drawing that continues to amaze me.  I suppose it could be the simplicity of what can be achieved with a pencil and a piece of paper.  Actually, I use set of six pencils that are different degrees of hardness and softness. I admire good drawings.

These days I/we have a lot going on.  I have several projects I need to complete. Last week we went on a little trip and had a good time.  We each have a birthday coming up before long and our nine year anniversary was last week. This month we have tickets to the "Blue Man" group show.  Clint has seen it before in NYC.  He even had a little blue paint on his white shirt when we got home.  Now a lipstick stain, that is a different matter.  (Sorry, couldn't help it ... can't help that I am sitting here typing and laughing at my own little joke.)

Hopefully everyone will have a wonderful, relaxing and safe July 4th holiday. 

Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the world.

Oh, Cindy, you are SO very talented! I feel like I can reach out and pet that cat!

Happy birthday to you and Clint, and also happy anniversary!

P.S. Pretreat lipstick stains with Shout- should take it right out! ;)

Awesome portrait, Cindy. It looks like a photograph. Wishing you and Clint a wonderful and safe July 4th. We saw Blue Man Group in Boston last autumn and I do hope they don't have the technical difficulties they had then. I felt they should have had something like one of their videos to show when there is a 10 minute technical difficulty. The crowd was getting pretty upset but they redeemed themselves when they came back and performed. I guess for some folk it was a good time to check emails, etc. Enjoy yourselves!

Hi Cindy. You have lots of celebrations coming up. I hope you enjoy them all and have a happy 4th July. Your drawing of the cat is really beautiful, and so life-like. How I wish I had a talent like that!

Cindy I keep being taken aback at how gifted you are, this is truly a beautiful piece of work. It really makes me miss drawing, I loved using my pencils. Happy July 4th, I hope you're having a lovely day!
