I was all alone in my studio. This was not so bad, since kitties like to play with my things, so I worked and worked without the worry of kitties swatting expensive pastels or pens, or walking across my artwork or swatting at my hands as I worked or stealing my tools.
But I was lonely, and…suspicious. Before too long, curiosity got the better of me and I went to look in my bedroom where I knew there would be cats. All five, totally sacked on the bed. Well, they wouldn’t be going anywhere for a while I could tell. Might as well take a break for a sketch. It’s Jelly Bean, Mewsette, Giuseppe in front, then Mr. Sunshine and Mimi in the back.
Later, I checked again and found an indistinguishable gob of black cats, below, and Mimi came to greet me, spending the rest of the afternoon on my lap, and acting as my paint rag.
I love it when the Four sleep in a pile as they did when they were kittens. Above was what I really saw. Here’s a lighter version so you can distinguish the individuals—though sometimes when they are like this I’m not sure they are truly individuals.
What was I sketching a year ago today?
Jelly Bean and Mr. Sunshine decided to hang out on top of the wardrobe…see the original post and read more about the sketch.
