Portrait of a Sphynx

In Language Arts class, we’re studying poetry. Last week, I had my students take a poem we read and put it graphically on a piece of paper. I also gave them watercolor paints to add color or shapes to the design. The results were really cool.

While they were working on their poems, I decided to do a picture too. Tara asked me to have my students fill out some surveys and mail them to her. I thought I should send something fun in the envelope too, so I painted a picture of Gus for her. I got a little carried away and kept working on it over the weekend.

I like how it turned out though, so I’m putting it into the memory archive.

    This really is a good rendering – I agree! Much better than those two photos you used to hang on your front board – you know, the uncooked turkey in the pan and…and reference the snapshot you took of Gus and posted here two days ago.

    Yup…much nicer rendering of Gus above. “Hi, Gus!”
