I recently found alot of old sketchbooks and watercolor Pet Portraits that I used to do in ink and watercolor and found "Cleo", the first portrait I did with my then new found style while I was in art school at Cal State Fullerton.
I loved working on her because it was just for me and I could render her anyway I wanted to. It was a real treasure to find tucked away and brought back so many nice memories.
Its funny how looking thru old sketchbooks I know exactly where I was and what time it was in my life. I spent an hour just flipping thru the pages of sketches, notes and writings from the past. How fun was that?!? Lots of fun! :)
I am going to mail this portrait to my friend Diana. She lost Cleo in December, I think she was 16. So I"m sure she will enjoy getting this.
What treasures have you found lately?
