Amur Leopard by Wildlife Artist Karie-Ann Cooper

Well they did say the weather was going to be bad today, so when Willow decided to wake me up at 6, I thought I'd get on with the leopard wildlife art which has been staring at me for a while! At long last every inch of paper is now covered! It was a long hard slog but I did finally get there and as we all know I'm sure to go back to edit areas and tweak this and that but on the whole you now get the general idea that everything is in place, phew! As for the weather, it has not rained one drop yet, sack the weather reporters I say, they really are rubbish.
And just because I can't help myself, here is the beautiful Willow, as always, waiting to play football, she is now so superb at catching the ball as soon as I kick it and before it touches the ground that I reckon she'll make the best England football goalkeeper ever! (although it may be my talents at the beautiful game are pretty poor)
I've also added lots of pictures to my flickr account from the steam rally at Abergavenny and you can see all of those panels here from the truck I posted yesterday plus I've changed my website to match my blog now so you can take a look at that here. I'm also working on SEO for my website and that does take time and effort but I am slowly creeping up the rankings but I'm sure this time next year I'll still be doing the same!!! Wish me luck.

Wow, now that it's all covered I can see why the gray rocks drove you crazy, lol! It is so beautiful, Karie! And Willow looks so cute with her ball. :-)

Willow is a star footballer now, she is such a good goalie that I challenge anyone to take her on! And yes the grey did get very trying at times Kat, but I didn't give up which is a first for me!
