Cooper by Joilieder
Cooper is a feral that a neighbor and I were able to catch him in my garage.  I'm working on him.  He's so funny, can be lovable at times but downright wild when he wants to be.  Next week he's getting neutered and I sure hope that calms him down.  My body could use a break from all the scratches and bite marks.  He is a joy though.  I was upset that I couldn't capture his two sisters and beautiful mother.  They've all disappeared now.  The Mom left first and the three kittens stayed and lived in my garage.  I even moved my car out but after a few more weeks they're all gone now.
I just discovered a new artist, acrylic painter, who is amazing. Check out Fuz-Caforio-Art some time and enjoy his animals. They are WOW!!!  :iconblacklionplz:
Happy New Year 2015 (I wonder what happened to 2014?)
Hello to any friends I may still have.  I am sorry to write that I have not been doing any drawing for quite some time now.  Since retiring, my life has no pattern to it and certain activities have suffered because of it (like drawing).  I love retirement though.  Emotionally, mentally and physically I am doing so much better which is maybe another reason I'm not drawing.  Drawing has always been an escape or release for me and now I don't need those, but I do want to return to it some day soon and maybe even expand.

I do check in here most days and am so impressed with the many artists' works I see.  Wow!  

I hope you are all doing well.  'Til next time...Heart

I am a classically trained musician (bassoon) who recently retired after working as a secretary for a police department after 22 years. Yay!!! Love retirement!

I love to draw, especially portraits, using various pencils. I stopped drawing for years and just got back into it because well, first, because my sister died in Nov 2010 and then because I discovered Adam Lambert's band and Tommy Joe Ratliff in December '10. Tommy has the perfect face to draw.

I also love to read, mainly British cozy mysteries, have two kitty cats and hope to retire to southwestern England in a few years. (Yes, I'm that old.)

That's about it for now.
