Drawing animals is never easy; they always pretend not to understand that simple command "Sit still".
It may not look like it but this 3 year old drawing took me quite a while. It was originally drawn in pencil over a period of several weeks, then when I thought I had everything roughly in the right place, I finished it off with pen.
Unfortunately I recently found it hidden away in a corner, completely ruined by damp and mould.
Ah well, at least I still have the above photo of it (and the dog); and he still looks much the same.
N.B. Poor Monty goes into hospital this morning. He has kidney trouble and will be on a drip for 3 days to flush out his system. He's not eating, he's been sick a lot, and he's looking very miserable. Long term prognosis is not good.
Total Eclipse of the Blog
Hello, dear readers! Are you in the path of the eclipse? Did you buy the
special glasses? I am sort of in the path and bought glasses . . . however

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 45 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), a Border Collie/Black Lab' cross called Bok, a cat called Freddie, plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
