Adoption Series


I have been involved in illustrating several books since last year. The series is "Think Adoption First" and there is a Canine Series, a Feline Series, and now starting a small furry critter series. The idea was to illustrate a dog that was down on his luck, and then give him a new home and show how happy the dog and his new owner can be without having to buy an expensive pure bred dog. This is the happy picture of Sal, and one of my previous posts show the very sad Sal after his first family died.
.
So little by little I'll either illustrate my post with these drawings, or just display a sad and happy dog or cat. I hope you enjoy that.

Today here was glorious. We almost hit 60°, there was no wind, and there are only a few puddles left here and there where the drifts were the deepest. And there is nothing quite a blue as a Colorado sky! Unless it might be a Wyoming sky!
.
I finally got to meet my first great granddaughter Sunday. She is three months old, and a charmer. She is also a very red headed little girl, so I"m sure she will live up to her heritage.
.
I have to go and layout another furry little critter now. See you tomorrow.

Hi Judy, How are you. How exciting to have a great granddaughter! She sounds wonderful. Need more info!

Loved seeing the new illustration and description. Sad Sal wouldn't come in today, don't know if it was your blog or my computer.
I still am in awe of my drawing of Buster and how you captured him and wondering how you get the depth and perspective in it so well. I'd love to see you work someday. Glad you got such a lovely day. Love, Lynn

Okay, okay ... I have one or two photos on my camera. I'll try to get a picture of her up soon.

On the next illustration I do, do you want me to do a WIP, work in process, on Wet Canvas so you can follow along?

It occurs to me that you should have a link in your links list, to your pinedale site. I go there from time to time and enjoy it a lot. Actually, I haven't seen a town site yet that compares with it. ~ Judy ~

Yes, if you did WIP on Wet Canvas I would sure go there to follow the progress. I think that is great and it would help me learn to navigate there better too. That thing is HUGE.

Can't wait to see the baby.
Yes I could put pinedale on line on my blog.
Love, Lynn

Will have something up tomorrow ... errr ... today. Been busy planning the next stages of the restaurant website I've made and am maintaining ... along with the illustrations, keeps me busy. (And lazy to this responsibility!)
