Takes Your Breath Away.........

Every once in a while you see something so beautiful that it literally takes your breath away...

Whilst browsing around on other people's blog's I found this amazingly talented artist, Tara. On her blog is the most beautiful drawing of a cat - Tara recently did this drawing (Yes, it's really a drawing) using coloured pencils.

I think it's just so beautiful and wanted to share her blog with you all.

One day, when I'm back in the land of the financially sound, I'll be getting one of these of my own gorgeous little cat, Dizzie

Have a look at her work, if you know anyone that might be interested in getting their own pet drawn by Tara then do pass on the details of her blog.
She resides in the US but will post worldwide....

Now, look at this drawing and tell me what you think.........

If you click on the archive link, you can see the work of this drawing in various stages.

What takes your breath away?
What makes you use the words 'beautiful' 'amazing' or 'breath-taking'?


  1. Carole, this is certainly amazing. Such talent! My daughter Megan does the most amazing animal sketches/drawings using lead pencils.
    I will check out the site.

  2. That really is amazing. A wonderful picture and hard to believe it's not a photo. Like you, I could very well be commissioning something once I have the cash!

    What takes my breath away? So many things, but at this time of year . . . bluebell woods. There's a 14 acre swathe of beech wood near hear that's carpeted so thickly in bluebells you're hard put to find space to put your feet at times. And the scent is just divine!!!

  3. Hi Carole,
    Yes, this artwork is amazing!
    What takes my breath away?......
    A wonderful view,
    A stirring piece of music,
    The miracle of nature.
    Loyal and amazing friends.
