One foot in front of the other




I am trying to get back on my feet after a month away from home and the art studio. These little sketches of a friends' dogs were my first chance back at drawing from life which I love to do and found very therapeutic. Most of the time I don't think of art as therapy because I take it so seriously-it is hard Work!
I do however, consider a sweet dog to be therapy.
The reason I have been out of the studio is a difficult matter to share in a blog, but I will just say this, my father died last month from cancer. I was with him and my mother, helped with the hospice care, and tried to do all I could to help with the funeral. Now, we must take it one step at a time to continue our lives without him.

Janice,

These are some really sweet drawings. I want you to know I've been praying for your peace.

Much love to you as you journey throught this very sad time,
