Drawing Lesson

Drawing Lesson by Sally Haig
“Drawing Lesson” by Sally Haig

A slightly revised version of this painting is on view through June at the Christmount Conference Center in Black Mountain. It was inspired by my admiration for the artist Hokusai, a prolific artist from Japan who among his many accomplishments made drawing instruction books. The “Great Wave off Kanagawa” woodblock print is one his more world famous images.

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.
