Illustration Friday - Beneath


Hope springs eternal. Hoover waits patiently in hopes that a tidbit will land beneath the table. I'm not sure if this is a work in progress or a pretty tight sketch. I may keep it black and white and work on it some more. Or, maybe do a version in color. I'm sure Hoover will wait patiently for whatever I decide.

Oh, thank you, Katalin. I think I might have to give in to. For awhile, I put our dog's dinner (in her dish) under the table while we ate - so we could all eat together. She's just a year old and we are trying so hard not to giver her people food! She's easy though. Not that interested in our food - unless it's cheese!

This is wonderful. We have a beagle / bassett that finds his way under any table where there might be a comforting stroke or a dropped morsel. None of us feed him from the table, with the exception of my 96 yr old mom who can't help herself when she looks into those eyes. Your style is heartwarming!
