Animals Aren't Ambivalent

5" X 7" pen and ink

“The main difference between animal emotions and human emotions is that animals don’t have mixed emotions the way normal people do. Animals aren’t ambivalent; they don’t have love-hate relationships with each other or with people. That’s one of the reasons humans love animals so much; animals are loyal. If an animal loves you he loves you no matter what. He doesn’t care what you look like or how much money you make.”

I wanted to stop by and say thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog and I am glad I did. Your art is beautiful, I went back through all of your past blogs (and I never take the time to do that)just too see all the drawings. I am partial to the farm animals, but they are all gorgeous.
