Art for an Angel

Today marks four weeks since my precious Rosie gained her angel wings. I still miss her immensely. But, I am learning to fill that hole in my heart with fond memories of her, and so the ache ebbs a bit more each day.

I mentioned once before that just as writing helps me to cope, so does art. On days that the loss of my sweet Rosie weighs heaviest on me, putting my thoughts into writing, such as here on this blog, is a very cathartic process for me. And so is creating art in honor of my Rosie. That being said, last Thursday I made a post about bringing home my Rosie's remains. That was such a surreal, bittersweet day for me, and when I got home with my sweet old girl's remains I immediately felt compelled to draw in her honor. I wasn't sure at first if I was going to share that resulting art here, but I now feel compelled to do so.
For my angel Rosie, forever loved.
It's been too long since I last thanked you all for your support. This blogging community is full of such wonderful people, and I appreciate each and every one of you.

Have a blessed day.

We all know how hard it is to lose a beloved companion/friend who has been with you for many years. I still think about my "before" cats and remember their little ways of making me smile.

I love, love, love this drawing! I love the style, the look of dear Rosie, the colors, and the hearts. I wish I could draw like this!
