Late Christmas Pressy

Today we received a late Christmas present from my step-daughter a portrait of Missy.  Ruth has worked this drawing of Missy from a photograph and it is entirely worked in pencil.  She was really good as a youngster, but she really has come on in leaps and bounds. She does have A level Art.  Seems to be a gift on her father's side of the family. Her paternal grandmother, Father, Aunt and brother are all very good at art.  I have asked her if she will do me some pencil drawings of the cats as well.

Both my OH and I are extremely pleased with our pressy and it now has pride of place in the front room.  We think she has captured our mischievous pet extremely well.

Ruth is going to start taking commissions.  She works from photos and her work is done from the heart.  If anyone is interested please let me know and I will put you in touch with her.

Here's the photo

Now here are a couple of shots of the pencil drawing


  1. Wow!! she did an excellent job, you should be very proud of her she has a true talent for art.

  2. What a fabulous drawing! Ruth certainly has a great deal of talent. I know you will treasure this most beautiful gift...well worth the wait :o)
