Re: Beautiful Cleo for Karen


Emma - that's such a special picture, you have a knack for capturing the 'soul' of the animal; which is very hard to do.

Re: Beautiful Cleo for Karen


Thanks Donna, Moli and Yola.

The photo that Karen supplied actually had Cleo's eyes closed so we had a bit of a challenge putting the eyes in but I think both Karen and myself are happy with the outcome so far

Re: Beautiful Cleo for Karen


And this is the picture the essence of Cleo was taken from
as you can see closed eyes so we had to have other pictures for her eyes and we have agreed the change of flowers to majority daisy/open faced flowers such as Daisy's of assorted colours as my Dad adores open faced flowers but not as much as he adores Cleo. he and she have always had an affinity....she adores him as much.

I'd like again to Thank Emma for being so patient getting the eyes right, the soul of my cat, Thank you.

And as Emma won't take money for the pictures and we are donating to rescues - Smudgley get ready for a donation.

Re: Beautiful Cleo for Karen


Thanks Elaine, she is a little sweetie isn't she, I am hoping to get this one completed in the next week or so, and I have my pastel workshop on Monday to Wednesday.
