    Did this awhile ago, it's a pen & ink that I didn't mess up. (Usually get too dark, too quick and then it goes in the trash. Lol!) I like the look of cross hatching but, boy, it's time consuming (and for me, at least, a little nerve-wracking since it's hard to fix or cover up mistakes.) I did do one more that I like, it's of my old dogs - I'll have to drag it out of its frame and see if I can get a decent scan of it.

    WOW I can't believe you did that in pen and ink (I mean I do believe you of course but WOW!!). It's brilliant and is so detailed, I love it :D. I can't wait to see the next one!

    Thank you all for the kind words... I like mules and it turned out better than I thought it would (and of course, my not-so-great ones end up in the trash so you won't see those. Lol!)

    Smkie: No, I haven't seen them... Is that in Kansas City? Hmmm, maybe I'll do a search online...
