I started this drawing of Biscuit a couple of months ago, then it got put to the side while other projects took over. I discovered it and decided to do some more work on it today. I wanted to put the dog in a setting that he was most happy in - tearing up the lane into the woods, chasing bunnies and moose - always unsuccessfully.
I have roughed in the background and will expand on that over time as well as adding detail to the dog's fur. I added a remarque to the page, a classic for poor Biscuit, who always seemed to going in the opposite direction to the rabbit.
While gathering spagnum moss from a nearby marsh today, this little plant was found growing in it. It is, as far as I know, a form of a sundew plant, which is an insectivore, as it supplements its meagre food supply with insects that it catches in its sticky tendrils. I will try to keep this alive in a damp setting to see if it grows larger. I think its rather pretty and so tiny - about 2 inches high.
