Children and animals

I can never decide.

Do I love drawing children best?

Or do I love animals?

This summer in Lowesville, Virginia I had the chance to draw both.

The family’s  youngest child, drawing monsters. Luckily he was not using me as his model!

But he was a wonderfully calm and focused model for me.

I stepped away and a kitten entered the picture

So I drew her, and her sister.

Luckily, she had some origami to fold, so she modeled for me too.
