Equal time

Here's a little drawing of Fiona, who would like to request
equal time in the land of iPad drawings, as Timbah, our
other cat has taken up space on the blog several
times.  This is as fresh as art can be.  I finished the drawing
and began this post.  I love the immediacy of iPad

Fiona is a Tortie point Siamese cat, and so
intelligent that when Steven tells the animals to go
downstairs, she runs down the stairs.  Timbah is intelligent
in a different way, because he doesn't.  The animals sleep
in the downstairs office at night, so they don't wake us
up.  Zoey, the dog curls up in a crate with many quilts in
 it, and the two cats sleep side by side on little, fake sheep wool
beds, beside a heating vent.

I went to see the Don Valley Art Club fall show today.
It was the last day and I was so glad get in before
they took it down.  It was spectacular.  This was one of the
few shows the club has held since I became a member
10 years ago, that I have missed.  My congratulations
to all the members in the show, for one of the best
I have ever seen at Todmorden Mills.

Have a taking-an-indulgent-nap day.
