Passing the time



Yesterday I had to take Pablo to the vet- the poor sweet thing has been wheezing and sneezing up a storm. While I was waiting for him
as he was X-Rayed, I worked off some nervous energy by dashing out, and then back to the vet's, to knock off a couple of drawings. I've always loved the look of flat color against line. (BTW, Pablo has asthma!)

First off, I hope the vet was able to help Pablo. He's such a sweetheart, and I know he's been having a hard time. I hope there is some sort of medication for the little guy.

Secondly, WOW. These are great. I especially love those pops of color. Inspiring as always!

Hi Bri!

so glad to see you here again!

Pablito is doing better, thanks.
You know how relieved I am about that!
If anyone has any tricks for getting a cat to eat a pill, I am all ears.
thanks for checking in and for your comments-
hope to see you soon!

These are exilirating!!!! I give up, I don't know how to spell exilirating, hehehe

Makes me want to go draw. I wish there were more things do draw where I live, but I guess if I really wanted to, I'd find them.

Thanks for continuing to inspire me Melanie, even long after me leaving FIT :D I feel that I learned more about drawing in your class than in any other.

Have you tried mixing pills into Pablito's food? I know it's sneaky, but whatever works!

Ira Robbins said...

great drawing! (grays)
hope Pablo is feeling better.


smash pill up in tuna.

bribery. does Pablo have a favorite after hours tv cable show?

memi said...

Anna- thanks so much for continuing to support me!
This is still a new adventure and it's always great to hear from others. It comes full circle- then I want to draw more, too!

Thanks Anna and Ira for the Pablo pill suggestions-
I am starting to sneak it into his food, but hadn't thought of tuna.. Bri sent me a great link, too,
so thanks, everyone,,,

Hi Melanie, I hope Pablo is on the mend, I know all about asthma.

These drawings are great as usual, I love the flat colour. hope to see you soon.

memi said...

Thanks, Stephen.
I too, need to push the boundaries of what I do or
else I feel like I am stalled. The flat color is one way.
I am anxious to get out for another marathon day-
Please let me know when you are back in town.
Say hi up there for me and keep the beauties coming.
Thanks for the note about Pablo- he is better- and my heart is singing again...
