"Poppy" & "Swallowtail & Birch"
My cat "Poppy" sleeping on my t-shirt, she was sound asleep so she was holding still. My first attempt at drawing her, I never wanted to try before, but doing Everyday Matters, gave me some confidence I did not have before. I think it came out pretty good. She is so hard to photograph because she is black and shiny, so she absorbs light but reflects it too.
This is a sketch in colored pencil of my 3-D quilt, that is sitting on a shelf in front of me. It is about 20" tall and 5" diameter birch tree, made from my original photo printed on fabric and thread painted, with 3-D leaves and butterflies.
