Graphite Cat Portrait ATC

Graphite on Fabriano paper (it has found a good home ;o )

It's been a while since I have posted anything new...have been feeling a bit uninspired lately after recovering from the flu which knocked me back for a while. In order to get myself back in the swing of things, I joined in on an ATC trade at the Pencil Painting Network which helped to get me back on track. It was fun to do, and of course it is always fun to receive a lil artsy ATC treasure in the mail.

Hi Christine! I've figured out that I need to open the frame in a new window for the post to go through. It may have something to do with Firefox's popup blocker but I don't know for sure.

That aside, I just wanted to say how much I like this drawing and how glad I am that you're posting again! The kitty is just gorgeous as usual!

Christine said...

Thank you so much Jan! I am glad it's working for you now! If it's a cumbersome process though to post now, please let me know and I'll change it back to the pop-up window.
