The Fluffy and Helpful Newfoundland Dog Cleo

It was such a nice day yesterday. We spent a lot of the studio time outside. Cleo could check out what was going on and I could work on my drawings. Can you believe how fluffy this girl is?!? Here is one of the sketches I worked on.  Random Thoughts and Not So Random Thoughts There are currently some technical issues with the blog so my blog posts might be on hold until tech support can fix it.
