Project 365, Day #205


I hope you had a good day.  It was a very busy day for me.  Lots of work to do for our home improvement projects.  I also have a bit of bad news.  We have to put down one of our dogs, Cody.  I don't remember how much I have told you about him.  He was diagnosed with cancer in March of 2012.  The tumor was in his left front leg.  We chose to remove his leg and he had treatment.  He did so well and at times was acting like a puppy again.  It really is amazing how he adjusted.  About two months ago he went in for one of his follow-ups and the cancer was in his lungs.  That is the normal progression for this type.  Well, now it is time for him to go, so he doesn't have to go through to much pain.  He is already coughing and does not have that much energy.  Of course the guy never complains about anything, so it makes it even harder.  He still wags his tail and won't let go of the ball when he is playing on the floor.  The vet does say he did very well for the type of cancer he had.  Of course we are all a mess.  He is scheduled to go in on Friday.  I am telling you all now because I know on Friday, I won't be able to write about it.  Here is a picture of our boys.  Cody is in the front and Seamus is in the back.  Just hanging out waiting for their food.

On to tonight's butterfly.  A quick color sketch.  Here is butterfly #205.

I used Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder markers.  Once again I just drew directly to the paper, no erasing or changing my mind.  Sometimes that is hard to do, because I would like to start over.  I keep going though and work with what I have.

That's all for me tonight.  Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
