Silverpoint on Paper, 13 x 15"
I worked on this portrait of my catShadow by lantern light in the evenings following Hurricane Sandy. Each night we would curl up by the fireplace and get to work. I am so glad that I did this when I did because less than 6 months later, my companion of 17 years passed away suddenly. I later used the drawing to create an egg tempera painting. The time spent on that work made it seem as if he was still with me.
