My family of pets make great subjects for the sketchbook. Ideal because generally they don't stay still for long, even when sleeping. So they encourage rapid spontaneous drawing.
You can email me for information about anything you see. A small collection of work can also sometimes be seen in my Etsy shop.
Earlier this month my dog pack increased by one. Yet again, I'm sad to say, because of the cruelty of a local human being. When we found her, Lady had been dumped on the mountain and was hiding in a thorn bush waiting to die. She was terribly under-nourished, suffering from a blood infection caused by tick infestation and also had ring worm.
The bald skin was caused by the ringworm fungus.
Here she is patiently allowing Dimitris our vet, remove ticks from her bleeding ears.
I'm now very happy to say that almost 3 weeks later, Lady is in much better shape. After lots of antibiotics, vaccination, good food, vitamins, minerals, many special shampoo treatments and loads of love, her blood is recovering as is her skin and her hair is growing again. She has the sweetest of natures and is lively and full of fun without being difficult to handle.
Here she is playing with George, who she absolutely adores!
