Madison’s world

I have been working on a series about my cat, rescued from the Valley Human Society, a Tortoiseshell female who was one sick kitty when we first got her. She had problems with her gut and our Vet at the Parkway Veterinary in Dublin saved her. She has what our Vet calls Tortitude. And noted her long legs as a kitten.  She is very smart, and her various ways of getting her humans to serve her correctly are persistent and generally quite successful.

Drawing Fun

And I do mean fun. Contour drawings of heads. My drawings got better as I slowed down, looked and thought.
