    "Always Love Me - MonAmie".  This is a painting of my dear little cat, she was a rescue and when we first got her, she was terrified when we left the house.  When I came home with these two large French Style Pots - she immediately adopted one as her special hide-away-place.

    Here she is, lying on top of the cushions for the outdoor furniture, her little body following the curves of the pot.  She is black, so I used charcoal to sketch her in, then concentrated on the orange colored cushions then placed dark gray and indigo and a little pale grey for her little nose and mouth and with a little yellow-green for her beautiful eyes.  She allowed me to sketch her and was intrigued with the process.  I finished the sketch sitting near the pot whilst she slept.

    Pastels are great for capturing the image fast and keeping the character of the face and manner.  She is a very special little member of our family and will always be nervous and loathes strangers, when they leave she is back to herself.
