I haven't been doing a lot of sketches lately as I've been busy packing and getting ready to move to Mississippi while celebrating my 32nd birthday last weekend and my father-in-law's 3 days later. While I've also been putting one of my projects on hold waiting for my client to provide further information and instructions, browsing through my drawing board, this one which I did months ago stuck me pretty hard.
I realized that Oni's been gone for 22 days. I know that life has to move on, my heart stays and still waiting for him, just like the teddy bear waiting for its master, time just stops. Although we've picked a new cat for adoption in the shelter, and about to bring him home next week, I know that I will love this one as much as Oni, but it will never be the same.
That aside, something wonderfully dropped in my mailbox yesterday and it came all the way from the UK.
It's a beautiful package from Lesley Purcell. And she's such a sweet person, giving us a super early Christmas card(the polar bear) which I just love! I can't see anything that I don't like about her art work, and if you haven't visited her site yet, I suggest you do HERE. Thank you Lesley!
