    Well. Now I don’t know what to say. I love animals and was a horse trainer. I even worked with a mule at one point. Rendered beautifully and I’ll hang this one too. Oh! …and that one with the dog, also…. 🙂 I am really glad I have followed you in this endeavor, K.

    Stay tuned; there’s a lot more to come, a good year or two more at least and you’ll see my actual book. There are definitely animals populating it, so you should find it interesting too. I’ll keep posting puppy sketches too as I get the puppy character down pat.

    Hi Kelly! Beautiful sketch! Can’t wait for your book. It is going to be great.
