Leo and Cleo....


Our curly girl was home sick today.....with a nasty cold. While driving to the doctor, she worked on a couple cat sketches.

On the way home, I got her an oreo blast from Sonic and the guy who delivered it looked through the window and asked to see her sketch.
I rolled down the window and he told her how good a job she had done ...which made her day.
He then went on to say practicing while in the car is good for her reflexes....he was an art student/aspiring architect who was working shifts at Sonic while going to school.
The top sketch is of Leo....our kitty.....
this one is of Cleo....her friend's kitty.

It is interesting that she can remember variances in their features. She hasn't seen Cleo since last June because we moved. But she was very slightly fluffy with rounded, soft ears.
Leo is a siamese mix and has that distinctly flatter face with sharper ears and a slick coat....which she captured in her sketch.

I have read about Leo on your mom's blog. He seems like a silly cat. You have done a great job with drawing a cat. I held my cat up to see your drawing and he meowed. I think he was giving you "two paws up" for a great cat drawing!

I have two cats and couldn't begin to draw their pictures. You did a great job. I hope to see more art on here in the future.

Hope you feel better soon!! Great job with the cats. You should try developing some cartoon cats - they are also fun to draw. Look forward to seeing more of your creations.
