Oh my goodness, I've just seen this!! Thank you, Gavin and my cc family. I've missed you all so much and I lost myself in my iPad drawing, which has been my main therapy since Sue died.
I now feel well enough to come out of my shell and come back to visit my wonderful cc family.
I don't really know how the pet portraits started (although Laura, my cat, insists of taking all the credit) but I seem to have hit a nerve with pet owners. I really hope to be able to raise money for cc and Sue's hospice. If anyone wants a pet portrait and wishes to make their donation to CCF, please do email me and I'll be happy to do one. Unfortunately, I can't set up a JustGiving page for a non-UK charity and I have no other way of tracking donations for the portraits.
I have a student due and I've just realised I've double-booked myself, so I'd better go.
Love to you all and see you soon.
