Wherefore Art

"Wherefore Art Thou, Linda"___12 x 9 pencil on archival paper for Linda
While on our recent ski trip, our Good Dane, ROMEO stayed with our friends Linda and Matt. Linda called with updates...Romeo was attached, and never let her out of his sight....I drew this for Linda to remember "her" Romeo....And, yes, I know that "wherefore" means "WHY" and not "where"....but I am not sure Linda knows that and it's her drawing! heeheeheee

The plains paintings do sound like a big project.
The Romeo dawing is so nice. Your animals are amazing!
