Hello everyone... TGIF as they say, although the weekends are very much like the weekdays now.
It's been quite a busy stressful time here, with trying to get Muffin back to health.
I've just come back from the vets yet again.
We've been every other day for two weeks now, but we think we're making some progress.
No more trying to hide tablets in food... she sussed that one out very early on.
We now manhandle her and squirt the meds down her throat by syringe.
It's a two man job which is quite unbelievable as she's only a mini shihtzu.
Anyway, her weight has stopped dropping, so the 'roast chicken' and carbs with added sensitivity food seems to be working.
Yesterday, she was more like her old self than she has been for weeks.
I suppose this could be taken as my excuse for not having artwork to show you this week... but I have had a little play with the Muffin painting.
It's still unfinished, but hopefully I'll be able to spend a little more time on it soon.
They look a little scary with their staring eyes at the moment...but I feel this painting will be one that will be played with for quite some time to come.
There can be so many layers added when hair is involved.
I thought I'd give myself a little treat and draw something that I can relax with... to lose myself in and my son came up with the perfect idea.
I'm hoping you will be able to see the few pencils lines that I've used to get the dimensions.
I'll be using black ink to add in the details.
I drew a wolf a few years back for my son and so will keep to that kind of design.
Finally, before I leave you today I thought I'd let you see my Mother and Baby Giraffe A5 prints.
(They are available in my Etsy show...see button in my sidebar)
I'm still watching the Giraffe Live webcam of April and Oliver over at the Animal Adventure Park
I can't believe that she's not had her baby yet... she looks like she's about to burst!
Some people have been watching the live webcams every day/night since February!
Hehe...I'm thrilled because I now have my own little herd!
One more thing before I go... I must apologise to everyone that has visited me and left me beautiful messages. I'm sorry that I haven't been visiting everyone...but as I mentioned it's been quite a few hectic weeks, so please forgive me and I'll try to get to you soon.
In the meantime... have a wonderful weekend and I'm off to see the Paint Party Friday gang...why not join me...just click here
