Snow Leopards by Wildlife Artist Karie-Ann Cooper

And again, a bit more of an update, at least the second snow leopard is starting to take shape now, I've been at this for ages now, my day job does hinder me plus I have all the usual things at home to do when I get home from work plus all of the animals to look after, there never seem to be enough hours in the day. I've just cleaned out birds, guinea pigs, and I still have fish tanks plus the rabbit shed to clean out as well, why can't a day be twice as long! Thankfully I find doing a picure relaxing so it isn't a chore for me and I can happily sit down in the evening to work on some art.
As for the update on Willow, she is currently fast asleep by my feet, she has been to work all day wearing her doggie coat as it was wet and cold and she coped admirably well, at the moment she is just interested in following me so she can stay off a lead, luckily the team saved all the clearer ground for us to train her on, she did get a bit tangled in the bracken, her legs aren't tall enough yet to step over so she has to bound over everything and sometimes she gets a bit stuck! I tried to encourage her to barge through as I cannot always go back for her but I did have to rescue her once when her coat caught on a bramble. I'm hoping she will be quiet this evening, she seems to have rechargable batteries, after an hour's sleep she takes off again but I think her hard day's work will send her to sleep all evening!
