Getting there....

BTW, I just registered for Nathan Fowkes color class on Feb. 12. I'm really excited! It's at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art for a one day workshop, 12-8. It took this workshop from one of the best in the industry to get this little winter cave bear to come out of her den!

Was in Orange County this weekend and went to a pet store. Saw these hybrid mixes, 2 kittens (adorable!) that were descendants of the Highland Desert Lynx and one kitten who was a Bengal, with Jungle Fishing Cat Dna. The shop proprietor said it took about 10 generations to achieve these animals and the first 2 went for (get this!) $899 a piece! Not shown are the spots, one looked like a Snow Leopard with a half tail (pictured), her sibling, a spotted lion cub. The ear curls were a genetic result of another species of house cat. I was transfixed. I would never be able to get this close to a wild species so these had to do...The Bengals love water and will go after anything in a fishtank and both breeds of cats are very friendly, can be trained like a dog, and must be supervised because they will gleefully shred apart your house. They grow slightly larger than a cat, and have slightly longer back legs than your average house cat. All were highly active, galloping around the enclosure sounding like miniature ponies.

I did this one in 2010. I made this picture up in my head. Comments are welcome.

First "clean ruff". Need to tie down some slight proportion issues, but this she is well on her way. Will get back to LePardine sometime this weekend, I hope.
