While searching for a line drawing of two of my cats
to send off for inclusion with a prose poem of mine
for a chapbook being produced by my writing group,
I've been getting into long neglected boxes and portfolios,
using the floor to sort and organize,
and discovering a few forgotten gems
in the process
This is a small print of the larger color pencil original of 1996, which I'm still looking for!
(two close up details of this one on my picture blog today)
Jack's Little Orange Dog
The original water color and ink
I'm fond of the odd angle.
I still own the little china dog, a gift from J.C. Carruthers (deceased)
More to come as the search and sorting continues
POST SCRIPT AT 6:30PM
pencil with some ink outlines-both are of "Little Mary" and "Una"
wrapped around the heat pipe in the kitchen from 2000
Photographed hastily cutting off some of the line,
but they will be scanned more carefully by the editor
Enough Spring Cleaning for Today
to Prairie Home Companion and supper.
