Dog Portraits, Jet




Jet is coming along quite nicely now. The speckledy fur colouring was fun to do and it was a challenge to get the colours just right. Apologies for the shine on the right hand side of the picture by the way.

Not much news on the animal front, we are still waiting for eggs to hatch before it becomes chaotic with chicks but the one major news flash is ....
WE THINK CYRIL HAS BEEN SPOTTED!!!!
If you remember, Cyril was my rescue squirrel who went to live with another rescue, Shizzle. Well just before Christmas, Cyril made a bid for freedom and disappeared. Now it seems there is a lone squirrel living very near the area where he escaped. This is not an area known for squirrels so we have our fingers crossed!
Shizzle, on the other hand is living the life of Riley in my chestnut tree. He has now managed to defend his tree from all invaders and has a large supply of corn from the chickens to tuck into.

Jet is looking great Karie. I love the way you manage to make fur so strokable! Hope that is Cyril you have seen. He is so cute.

As usual a wonderful portrait Karie Ann. You are incredible with animals. I do so hope that it is Cyril! I worried about him constantly since he 'ran away'. Pretty stupid considering I'm on the other side of the world! But there you are - your stories get into our hearts and minds.
