Cat scan

I have played with tiny drawings lately and am thinking of a small group of three or four in the same type of frames to exhibit at a show coming up at the end of March. These small drawings have impact in a frame that reflects their colour and gives impact to the piece. I'll be using a barn board frame in an almost khaki colour that is fairly deep, almost like a shadowbox in some ways for this piece. I just need a little mat to go around it and it will be complete.

The scan, as always, is disgusting and I'll take a photo if I ever arrive home or am at home in the hours of daylight. Work seems to capture most of my time lately and meetings are relentless an at all hours.

I did teach the life class last night, and didn't manage much more than a few lines in between doing the rounds of easels to help others. Next week, I'll be back on the other side of the easel and I can relax again!

Thanks BIllie, I've updated the image with a slightly better one, but its still not what reality is.

Yes, I'll show it again once framed and matted. No, I'm not making the frames myself. Someone might get annoyed if I start dismantling the barn for framing materials...:)
