It is with sincere thanks and appreciation that I post this sketch of Lily Olivia.



Thomas Dalsgaard Clausen has been busy sketching many of our kitty friends. He’s been asking for subjects, so I requested that Clausen select and sketch one of the Kitties Blue. He chose Lily Olivia. This is a sketch of a sleeping Lily done in ballpoint pen.

I believe this is the photo he used from our post, The Day After the Day After, published on March 10. I think he captured her purrfectly.

To see more of Clausen’s work, visit his blog, One Drawing Daily.

As of September  2015 Clausen is doing pet portraits on commission. To find out more, visit his site at http://tclausen.net.




snugglingOur giveaway for a copy of the book, The Good, the Bad and the Fury by Tom Cox, remains open for Comments/Entries through Thursday, April 16, at midnight EDT. The interest has been overwhelming, so I contacted the publisher and asked for additional copies. I now will be giving away FIVE copies. If you haven’t had the opportunity to enter, click here. U.S. residents only please as this is the U.S. launch of the book, which occurs today, April 14. 

Kitties Blue will not be available as much as usual for the next couple of weeks. We will continue to post as well as host our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. We may not be able to visit and comment as much as usual, however. Hope you will understand and continue to visit us.
