Short and sweet

Timbah (our older cat)
and Fiona sleeping

I hope you'll forgive me, because I'm absolutely swamped
with work. I feel quite a bit like Edgar on Arty Fice.
(See the link on my blog list).
What I really want to do is represented in the photo
of my two cats sleeping on their little lotus bed today.
It has taken about a year and four months for my
older cat to get used to the younger one. So I'm
going to sleep now. I wish you a wonderful day.
I'm proctoring exams tomorrow, and tomorrow evening
I will paint!

I can't wait.

Have an I-can't-wait-to-paint day.

In the icon on my blog roll this photo looked like a (really excellent!) painting!
My cats never composed themselves so artfully for me! ;-)

Hi Laura,

You're right, it does look like a perfect painting, and they've only done this twice. I don't know whether I'll do a painting like this, but I was grateful to them for posing.

Take care,

Sounds like a well deserved rest is on it's way. Happy painting!!

Hi Eldon,

No rest for the weary this weekend.
I'm marking 117 exams and finishing two very large canvasses for a show Monday, but thanks for the kind message.
