    Cloud Soft

    I've had trouble putting the initial mark on the canvas. However, once I got the eyes and nose painted (my usual starting point) I managed to keep going!

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    As to the intimidation of a blank canvas, you should have been around buying art supplies in the olden days of yore when a sheet of watercolor paper could cost 5 bucks back in the 70s and you were a starving artist. I still have some sheets I never could bring myself to "spoil".

    As to the subject matter, their being so lifelike in your mind, perhaps you're afraid of spooking them and then you won't be able to finish without your model. I like your idea to grab 'em by the eyes and nose. That way they can't scramble away for some other artist to paint.

    Looks great.
