It's been 10 days.
On Friday, I picked up Nellie's ashes. Right now her box is sitting on my side table.
This last weekend, I spent a lot of time in bed with a horrible cold. I miss my Nurse Nellie.
I have not had much of a chance to do any painting for the last 6 months. When I have been home, Nellie has wanted to cuddle. And when the Queen wants to cuddle, that is what you do.
Yesterday afternoon I got out my paints and here is my first painting of Nellie.
I am hoping to do a series - and when the right one resonates, I will create a huge painting like I did of my Sammy.
