Update On Quincy…

For those who’ve followed my Vlog, you’ll know about the cat my wife and I were caring for.  We called her Quincy after a character from the Japanese Anime “BLEACH”.  She was very stand-offish with us at first even though she kept coming around.  And there is a character who was referred to as a “Quincy” (type of spirit slayer) who was also very stand-offish and hard to get to know in the show.  So it just seemed appropriate to give her that name.


And like the character in the show she became more likable and eventually friends with us.  Unfortunately, she’d never come with us to our new place and we had to leave her behind.  We made arrangements for a neighbor to take over feeding her.  Well we finally went back a little while ago and here’s what we saw.

It Was Supposed To Be A Still-Life...

I call this piece, “IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A STILL LIFE”,  I couldn’t help myself with this one.   She looked so cute messing about under the tree.  This was my Dad’s cat Spikette.  The pose was based on my own cat Avalon, the beautiful black cat you see as my photo.  Both cats and my Dad are gone, so I’m really glad I did this piece.   It makes me think of all of them.  I’ve worked with Charcoal and Soft Pastel for years and this of course is done in the pastels.  I hope you enjoy this.

I’ve finished with my final exams…YAY!  But I’m also fighting a massive cold (yes I was fighting it while taking the exams as well…wheeeeeeee).  But now I have more time to rest and try and get over it.  In the meantime, I hope to be getting back to my writing and posting more sections here shortly.  Thanks for all your patience and I hope you’re all enjoying the holiday season.
