I think the self portrait that I did today is my best so far. Not just for this portrait challenge but the last one I did as well. It lost something in the shading when I scanned it. I used Derwent Drawing Pencils (brown ochre and black)
Friday had to have surgery today. She had an ear hematoma (I think that is what it is called). It was drained two weeks ago but was swelled again. The draining was like a bandage. This time it needed a more permanent fix. The vet goes inside the ear and sutures it back together so the blood doesn't just pool inside the pocket it had made. Now my credit card balance is worse than ever, but I will have a happier baby who has had ear problems all her life. She should be home tomorrow.
