Hello my darlings, hope you're all doing fine and having a creative and productive week. I've been unable to paint this past weekend or yesterday, so I don't have much to show other than the finished "Anne, the Usurper". The pic's still not 100% good since it's been raining and overcast in NYC for the past few days. But we had a wee bit of sunshine yesterday so I had a chance to take the photo below. I'm hoping to resume working on the two cats this afternoon and whatever progress I make, I'll post a pic later on today or tomorrow afternoon.

Without further ado, here's my sweet black labrador, "Anne, the Usurper". She was done on a 9.5"X12.5" sheet of Hahnemmuhle Premium Grey Velour Paper with Faber-Castell Pitt Pastel Pencils, Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils and Nupastels, using my incredible Icarus Drawing Board.

Many hugs and have a bright and cheerful week.
