Our family suffered a great loss recently. Roosevelt, our 15-year-old Maine Coon, passed earlier this week.

It has been a busy two weeks, but as I made a promise to myself to post something at the very least biweekly (or do my best, anyway), I’ve sifted through some older art and came up with this diptych.

Now, back to work! Have a fabulous day, all! :)
