Daily Sketch: A Sweet Cuddle

Bean and Sunshine couldn’t have been any sweeter cuddling with their faces together and paws entangled on the bed. Sunshine likes to sleep on his back, and Bean is just like a ball with his toes curled. I saw them on the bed and was so concerned I’d waken them, or they’d be aware of me, or move before I got my drawing stuff, I tiptoed back into my studio and in absolute silence got the sketchpad and grabbed a handy charcoal pencil and held my breath while I sketched. No move from the boys. Mission accomplished.

No sketch from this day last year!

  • Your artwork is just simply beautiful. You are very talented. I appreciate that you share it here.

  • Bernadette,
    A peaceful mission, actually accomplished.
    Your darling drawing (and story) make the word “cuddle” strangely onomatopoeic.
