Blue Shadow Mosura Shrimp

Since Bonnie (my dog) died I’ve struggled with managing my pain condition, especially at night.  Despite her tendency to add doggy smells to the room which should be banned under the Geneva Convention, and to kick me if she felt I was taking up too much room in my own blooming bed, she was very good at helping me manage pain.  She didn’t care about being woken up so long as her tummy got tickled and would snuggle up if things got too bad and I wasn’t coping.  Without her I’m struggling to rest properly.

 

So this is why I’ve not been painting for a few months.  All I’ve been able to manage is work and looking after my son.  Anyway, things are gradually improving and today I managed to paint a small quick sketch for fun.  It took about half an hour and it’s of a beautiful Blue Shadow Mosura Shrimp. (I think)

Here’s the sketch…

Here’s the beginning of the background…

And here’s the finished sketch…
