It is 36" x 24" on poster board.
Sorry about the flash reflection.

Well, glad you didn't! Isn't it odd (and fun) how a piece evolves & almost decides for you what it's going to be?
Just a suggestion, for your next one? Use a better paper. (I'm the designated paper-snob. :lol: ) You'll be surprised at what a difference good paper will do for a piece.
Hope to see more! :wave:
Aren't you glad you didn't throw it away? I love the shadows in this. Wanda

This is great, and I especially love the colour in the rocks. You've been busy lately with all the ones I have seen in the Pen & Ink Forum as well. :clap: :thumbsup:

Fortunately for us you didn't throw it away!! You've done an excellent job with the shadows and rocks!!
Does poster board work well for p&i work? Your CPs will really stand out much brighter and cleaner on a better support!
Big too!! How long did this take you?

Seeing as how I kept putting it away and almost threw it away several times....it took almost 2 years.

2 years well spent!
What a lovely picture! It has a real painted quality about it.
Beautiful job, I love it. The title is perfect as well.

I sat and looked at this for a long time the other day, and just realized I didn't comment.
I'm so gald you didn't throw this away.
I love the way you handled the light, rocks and their color and texture.The fur is so soft and great color.
Please show us more of your work,
