On a cold cloudy day in winter, I was having warm thoughts of sunshine, green tropical plants, and the beach. Eventually this sweet puppy, Miss Marley, came to mind and warmed my heart — and I began sketching her. This portrait of Marley was made with a graphite pencil on acid free paper.
I hope to see her on our next visit to the tropics as she is charming and entertaining. Often we’ll play with her, go for a walk, or go swimming. She is wonderful company and a pleasant addition to the environment on vacation.
