Meet Nuke, or "New Kitty," his name originally was. If all goes well, this watercolor will be a gift for a family friend in remembrance of Nuke, who recently died at the old age of 17. He was a funny cat, very friendly, who was well known in his condominium complex because he liked to visit all the neighbors. As he got sick, he became very thin, thus his face is even more narrow than usual for a Siamese. And he was a bit crosseyed. Here's the original photo.
For my watercolor, I wanted to try a miniature, and while it's not truly "miniature," it is a small painting at about 3.5" x 4" (but will probably be about 4" x 6" when done). I figure people might like a smaller painting they could have on their desk, as opposed to a big 8" x 12" that would take up quite a bit of wall space. I just got going on it, there's lots more to do yet.
Knitting update: I'm still knitting away on my Clemence sweater, but it's not too exciting to show--I'll finish the front today and move on to the sleeves. Or maybe I'll seam what I've got so far and see how it looks. But now I'm off to take the boy to the dentist for his check up, so I won't have time till this evening. Have a great day, everyone!
