Getting Ready for Christmas or Nevermore's Night Before Christmas

Too much action here. Had to stop and draw for a bit to get my head back - he wasn't done in this photo - the ornament is now redder with a more realistic light on it.

One of my friends, said "How do you be so prolific writing when you have all that stuff you are doing?" Well, writing brings me back from scattered-ness often.

My dog is mad because I am gone so much now and he is pooping in my studio. Cute, eh? Sooo poor baby is going to have to go to a cage when I'm absent. He thinks he needs to go with me each trip. That is not always practical - for him. The Mama Cat has been put on a diet by the vet. She tore her Cruciate Ligament in her cat knee and we thought she would have surgery, but he wants her in a more safe weight zone first - which is something we needed to do, just didn't know how. Well, both cats are very ticked now about being rationed and are beating up on Guido. Maybe the deposits were in retaliation to that, or maybe they just scared the poop out of him. Who knows what animals think.

This week is the last week to the Event - I'm nervous but excited. A few more tweaks and the gallery setting will be looking great - and then Gallery Night, and I hope I sell all of that, although the charcoals will be kind of like selling off my children.

So, enough for now!

Nevermore looks fantastic whatever the season!
I'm very happy for you about the Gallery!!! I was following the news on your FB page, and it's so exciting!

Good luck with your pets. Pisko had an infection above his eye which I popped open and cleaned out. That night he didn't even eat, but the day after he was as bright and affectionate as his usual self. I don't know what I'd do if he tore a ligament like your cat did.

Took cat to vet for post op evaluation. He said she was too heavy for surgery right now and seemed to be getting around very well. Because of her age, he wants her to loose weight - she we are in a "weight" and see mode....
