Christmas Sketchbook and a Daring Escape from Euclid

Angie is a good model. She stays still for a long time. (Note: Her bed does not really look this much like a peppermint)
We just got back from a brief trip to Kentucky to visit Troy's parents at lake Barkley. We had hoped to stay till the 26th, but the blizzard warning forced us home a day early. We worried about getting trapped in the storm. Snow clearing is not good in KY...

So I am posting this on "storm watch"... Soon we will know if our caution was justified.

Anyway, I did some little sketches of Angie, my in-laws' dog.

Ahhhh....The humiliation continues...
Here is a view of the lake... The sunsets are beautiful.

I also sketched my mom, brother and sister-in-law's pets on Saturday while we celebrated at her house.

The full menagerie!


  1. Love sleepy Angie's peppermint bedding. These are awesome!

  2. Thanks! Poor Angie is getting up in years. She did not even snap at my pant leg during this visit...

  3. Terrific drawings. I especially love the sleepy Angie one, the line is so fresh and loose and expressive and the color so sensitive. There's a wonderfully warm, loving vibe to it.

  4. Thanks for the kind words Zina! Unfortunately, we just found out Angie has cancer and will not be around much longer. She seemed a little off a Christmas and I feared we would not have her around next, but I did not think it would be so soon...

    Troy's parents really love that little dog. It will be very hard on them.
