  2. Oh my goodness, you posted! Wooooooo!

    Totally gorgeous beast! A yak? He seems sad. Or maybe life is just hard for a yak. It looks cold. I hope he has friends nearby. Because everyone should have friends nearby. I hope you are well! I hope you post another soon. :D

  17. Hey! You sneaked this one in when I wasn't looking! It's totally fantastic. You've caught that look of sadness in the eyes that they seem to have ... bowed down with the weight and woes of the animal-world.

    We're both back, painting, in Africa at the moment. High-Five!

  18. How did I miss this post? I've missed seeing you in blogland - you tease us with these stunning pieces every so often with a poignant quote attached! This is gorgeous and John describes the look in his/her eyes perfectly. World weary.
