TeresaM,

Love the kitty.  Cute little nose.  Great hair, white whiskers.  Nice background.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Excellent Theresa.  I was looking all over for your drawing and eventually found it.  Good job. Don't know anything about scratchboard but it looks interesting and as I said, your "scaredy cat" was done so well.

 :heeha:   Brilliant Teresa!!!  :congrats:   Just love his startled little face. Have you looked at the scratchboard classes here? They are excellent!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

I'm still working on how to get a good water effect....  :crazy2:   Great fun though. I hope you'll be doing more.
Cheers, Val

 :thankyou: Thank you everyone for your encouragement it means alot and i will try to do more but finding  the time with everything else that's going on in my life is not easy.

 Every day i keep seeing things or pictures i want to paint etc.

As i keep saying to my husband lately as he has been going through some stressful decisions withhis father, one day at a time.
