Thank you, everyone, for the prayers and sweet words.
It's hard to see someone you love go through a difficult time...  

It was good to take a breather, but I'm glad to be back too.

Over the week I was able to finish a Pet Portrait.
Dash melted my heart. 

Here are some progress pics of the little guy:  

Here is the finished piece:  
Charcoal on Paper, 9"x12"

I mailed him out to his owner today.  :) 

So very grateful to be able to do this for others.

I'll be posting some journal stuff next week.
And I think you all are pretty fantastic.
