Sketchy Mondays – Just Add Color

The sketch above began mindlessly, and then morphed into a portrait of my son’s beloved, mangy, Happy Cat.  It’s one sad-looking, well-loved toy.

I’m so excited that my children go back to school next week, so I can get back to painting – and have something to post besides doodles!!!
