Amur Leopard by Wildlife Artist Karie-Ann Cooper


This seems to be taking an age, I work on it almost everyday and yet I don't seem to be getting anywhere fast. My problem is I keep reworking areas, bits I don't like and although plenty of time is being spent on it no more coverage is happening!!! I'm also pretty fed up with grey now, I've found lots of wildlife images I can use and the next one from my batch won't have any grey in it! Good job it's sunny and not a grey miserable day!!!
Done a bit more to my website and blog, I've actually set up my new wildlife art website now, I just cannot publish it! Something is wrong with my host so hold your horses for a while, besides which it is not very full at the moment! I've also added lots of photos to my flickr stream which you can view here or by clicking on the 'pink f' at the top!!! You can subscribe to my flickr stream and get the latest images as I take them as well so now I have to take more photos to keep you all amused! Plus of course, Willow has her own album and you can see just how much she has grown already.
I also decided to sort out my links onto pages for each subject which took a bit of organising I can tell you, it's been all go here!!!
I've also received a few more wildlife image entries for my competition so if you are wanting to enter don't forget the end of this month is the deadline. I am going to add all of the images to my new website, which of course when I get to publish it, you will eventually see them all.
This is one of the photos I added to flickr, this is Rag one of my rescue bunnies, they are off to the vet this month for their mixy and VHD jabs (have you ever tried taking 5 rabbits to the vet at once?) and as there are so many of them they have to go in stages, plus they have to have two jabs each but they can't have them together so it's two trips each as well!!!! It does become a bit problematic when there is a dog who likes rabbits for all the wrong reasons as well sat in the same waiting room!
As for tractor news, we went to tractor parts and auction yesterday but failed to buy anything, it was packed out, the field was full of rusty bits to bid on and two fields were used for parking, tractors must be the newest must have item, wonder if I can sell ours secretly?!?! I took Willow along for her to meet lots of dog and people and she was very well behaved although she did have Patch her friend from work (a little terrier) to chew on for some of the day. Willow is so big now Patch really is just a mouthful for her, Patch didn't seem bothered by this litle fact at all though!!!

The rocks are looking great Karie, but I can see why you are tired of grey by now, lol.

Reworking the areas is defiantly worth the time. It's looking amazing so far! Keep it up!
