I saw that Dick Blick (a large art supply store with a web site www.dickblick.com) was having a contest called “Fur and Feathers” and invited people to enter the animal-themed art. On the “nothing ventured nothing gained” theory I decided to enter. The hard part was to pick which piece to enter as they allowed only one entry per artist.
I decided on this pastel portrait of my beloved cat Mick. I did it a few years ago, and I’m not convinced that it was among my best, but I always liked it, I think because of the composition and the theme.
Anyway, I was delighted to hear this morning that I’m one of six winners! Yeah! Go, Mick!
