A Memorial Picture





I made a small memorial drawing for Betty the other day.  I cast her in the role of Julian of Norwich's cat.

Here's a close up:




It has lots of problems, not the least of which is trying to do baroque drapery out of my head.  I may or may not turn it into a small panel picture.  I haven't decided.  I'm in the middle of a lot of other projects at the moment.

Michael and I are still grieving for our kitty.  The house still feels very empty and out of kilter.


For our late little princess:

Love the sketch.

(PS: you could do quite the business with one for cats, another for dogs... just sayin'.)

Doug, the drawing is lovely. The picture and the words together made me cry.

What Margaret Said.

[I just saw this at MP's and, after half a sec, figured it was by you.]

One thing confuses wee me: who is on whose lap?

Betty, enjoy your Golden Tail in Catnip Heaven. {{{Betty's Pride}}} Holy Julian, my name-saint, pray for us!
