Family, General

How to tell that your kid is listening

When Sarah was here we talked about rears a lot – Cardigan rears, so get your mind out of the gutter. We were putting puppies up on tables and making Doug fall asleep behind our endless discussion of pelvic angles. A couple of days later I picked this up off the floor – note all the wrinkles and stepped-on marks – and started laughing. It’s the most thoughtfully she’s ever done a stifle and hock joint. Mysteriously, the griffin has lovely length of second thigh and a good low tailset, though his carriage perhaps leaves something to be desired!

Good on ya, Meri – keep listening!

    Great work, Meri! The composition, the anatomy, and the faces all look great! The 3/4 turn of the girl’s face is really nice.

    I think, though, that your mom got the animal name wrong. A griffin should have a lion’s body, a hippogriff should have a horse’s body. This looks like you’ve created a Canigriff or even a Cardigriff. 😉
