Lovely drawing Dors - you've really captured this little chap's dense winter coat.

I follow Mark's photography blog - I love black & white images.

that is great. Through it all there is a personality you have captured.
The tarantula you did is unusual as a subject but was handled beautifully. God job.

Dors said...

Thank you Gary. always appreciate your comments.

And a quick follow up note from me, DOrs. Thank you so much - received in the post yesterday. So beautiful in the "flesh", electronic screens just don't do it justice :)

Dors said...

Thank you Mark. I am so pleased that you like it.

Aw, this was a really nice post. In idea I would like to put in writing like this additionally - taking time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and by no means seem to get something done.
