Distant Gaze... by Artsy50 Distant Gaze... by Artsy50
This is something I've drawn as a Thank You for :iconvelvet-paw: She recently gave me a very nice feature of some of my artwork and I really appreciate her generousity and her kind words and all the witty conversations we've had. ;P Thank you Julia for being my friend. :heart: :love: :huggle: :XD:

I used her lovely photo entitled Beautiful Stripes as a reference for this piece... :D Hope you like it Julia! :XD:
(I misplaced his stripes and his right ear, so I added an extra one....Stripe I mean, ooops!) ;P

8 x 10 drawing with colored pencils, graphite pencils and a bit of White Acrylic paint. Maybe 8 to 10 hours work...not sure as I didn't really keep track of the time it took. ;P

Thanks again...lol...now, if I can only find some wall space... ;P If I hung every piece I wouldn't need to paint my walls, they'd be covered in artwork... lol! :XD: I may have to take down some older pieces to make room for the new. (I really should sell some of these.) :D
