Back on the Saddle

Turbo then and now
It's always a little intimidating to start drawing again after a long break. I did a little warm up today on my sketchbook and on some really cute egg shaped Japanese hand made paper cards (3.5" x 2.5") I bought at The Paper Place in Toronto.
I took this photo of Turbo & Daniel this morning and couldn't help thinking of how tiny my puppy was when we first got him.

It's wonderful to hear you say that. Even YOU who I admire so much get intimidated sometimes when rebooting.

Beautiful artwork, and puppy/dog! Isn't The Paper Place wonderful? By complete coincidence I have some origami paper that I bought there, up on my most recent post.

We love our little babies, don't we? I've got a Bassett Hound that's going to turn 10 in April and it breaks my heart. I don't have children, so he's my baby. I keep telling him we're going to be in the Guinness book of world records because he's going to live to be 40. Lol! Cute dog! And I love that drawing on the oval paper. Soooooo cute!

My parents own a border collie as well and when you look at the first photos, it's amazing how much he has grown. Yours is gorgeous! And his puppy photo is so cute. :)

Your drawings are wonderful as always!

Hello from Oklahoma!
All art intrigues me, but watercolor holds a special place in my heart, and when the work includes cute little birds, I'm hooked.
Thanks for putting a smile on my face today.
