Half a Cat Sketch

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and a restless model

I had such plans for February - then my back went. I saw out the month on a cocktail of drugs and am still afraid to sit still for too long. I hope to find my way back to painting soon, just as I hope some Spring weather will find its way back to Tuscany.

Many thanks to all of you who expressed concern at my disappearance. Look after you backs!

Ouch, Robyn! Know what you mean about a month vanishing - January was that for me with bronchitis! Hope you continue to improve and the cat comes back to pose!

Robyn said...

Thanks, Gillie. Let's hope we both have put the worst behind us.

Oh, Robyn, not a good February at all! I am sending you warm wishes for a complete recovery... better than new! And you're definitely due for a beautiful spring season.
I predict sunshine and strength in your future. :~)

WoW....... I'm so sorry to hear that. Rest we will wait. I have to say I have not been on the blogs either and I missed seeing all the work you've done. Now I have to catch up. All your pieces with the snow are just SO beautiful. I love them all.

It must be symbolic that you were only able to drab the back of the cat! I'm glad you're feeling well enough to draw a bit. I hope that means you're on the mend!!! All the best!

I'm so sorry to hear that you've been under the weather, Robyn. Spring is just about here, let's hope that youwill feel beter as the weather warms up.
I love your cat sketch - it's extremely simple but it says it all.

I love, love love this ink sketch.

Candy said...

Welcome back! I'm glad you're feeling better and posting again. A half a cat sketch is better than none:) I'm impressed that you could persuade your model to hold still as long as you did.

Oh, I am so sorry it was something difficult that made you disappear, Robyn! You've been missed. I kept hoping you were on some exotic trip somewhere, off enjoying yourself. I hope you're feeling your normal self very soon. This cat is wonderful--so expressive! Welcome back--I hope the back behaves from here on in.

Cathy said...

Yeah, so pleased to have you back Robyn. I love visiting your site. I am really looking forward to spring too.

Such an expressive cat. Love it.

Nothing worse than back pain Robyn. I hope yours eases up soon and you get some spring warmth to help it along.

The cat sketch is perfect. I love simple lines that says so much.

vivien said...

ouch! sorry to hear about your back - but this is a lovely fluid cat sketch so hopefully you are back on a roll :>)

Katherine Tyrrell said...

Been there done that and got the diclofenac!

Great to see you back posting again - and I love your half a cat!

Joan Sandford-Cook said...

So wondered what had happened to you Robyn - thought you might have gone down under (Australia) for a long sabbatical to see family and old friends. So sorry about your back - see you just managed to sit still long enough for half a cat!!!

Robyn said...

Many thanks everyone. I'm gradually getting to visit your blogs again.

Katherine - I had to look up diclofenac and yes it was the first medication I started, then the doctor put me on something stronger which I had a horrible allergic reaction to and so I moved on to the third cocktail - steroids and Valium! I didn't even know they still made Valium. I won't be going back there in a hurry.

Cathy Gatland said...

If you can turn out such beautifully simple line drawings in the few minutes your back will allow, Robyn, it bodes well for when you get back to full strength. Take care and get better soon.

Amie Roman said...

Welcome back (no pun intended) - what an absolutely lovely sketch!!

africantapestry said...

So glad to have you back at "have dogs will travel"...hope the back will be healed soon - meditation in the mornings, soft stretches, and loads of good rest...and many a half cat sketches...that ought to do it...?

And an "ouch!" from me, too. Hope you're better now.
Erm...where was Dermott when you were sketching his favourite pastime?
