eyes wide shut

Dogs are considered "man's best friend" because they are always so loveable. Last night, however, Pokey was hating me. He did not enjoy the fact that I was drawing him...AT ALL. I interrupted his peaceful nap and try as he might to continue on, he didn't feel comfortable enough with me sketching him to completely close his eyes. The result was the following unhappy model.



By the way, Pokey's latest nickname is "The Sausage."

Beautiful sketches these and especailly the one on his back is adorable! Not easy, doing animals, but very gratifying once you egt them down!

I saw a Pokey-dog this morning on my walk and immediately thought of you. I used to have a cat we called Meatloaf for the position she relaxed in.
