Billie & Bunny
I've been travelling to see a new grand child and am compiling sketches and images of the adventure that I'll post during this week.
Right now I'm getting my sea legs again with a 3.5 hour time difference to adjust to again and back to work in the morning.
However, I thought I'd share a quick drawing that I did of a friend's dog, Billie. Its about 12 x 15 done in pastel. Billie is a truly lovely dog, laid back, gentle and loves to fetch and and carry in true retriever fashion. This became very apparent as everytime I walked in the door or entered a room she would greet me bearing "bunny", her favourite toy to play fetch with. I started to call her "Billie & Bunny".
Billie was adopted and came from a French Canadian background, so only responds to commands in French. After a few false starts, my brain cells recalled French enough to communicate with the dog. "Donnez-moi le lapin, Billie." Yeah right she thought, fight me for it first. And so the game would repeat itself over and over.
Je t'aime Billie!
