Back from bit of hiatus

Hi everyone, I am back -- for those who don't follow me on Twitter, there have been yet more difficult times for our family as my grandpa (whom we call Groompoo) passed away last week. We are doing ok, and thank you for all your well wishes and prayers so far!
Naturally I haven't really been in the mood to create or socialize much but I think I am going to get "back on the train" now... starting with today's no-pressure whatever I feel like drawing sketch:

I am going to paint these little friends as soon as I'm done with this post.
These are my drawing companions today:

Lucky and Kiba :) -- it is insanely hot at the forest on the hill; a scorching 117 degrees, so everyone is pretty much flopping all over floors and beds and such. Last I checked, Belle was flopped in the dining room and Bitsy under the coffee table.
Now to watch Hulu and paint.

Carmen, so sorry to hear of your loss. I hope you take the time to grieve and heal with God. We all look forward to Carmen's artwork but taking care of Carmen the person is most important. Hugs to you and furry animal helpers!

Still sitting with you, thinking about you and what all you've been going through. The heat does not help, that is for sure.
That is how hot it was when we first moved there in 1988; 117 F. Thought we'd had the wrong planet, took a left turn at the border and ended up on Mars.
