You just saw this sketch as the featured artwork and desktop calendar for February. It’s that time of year, and I love seeing Mimi watching the dusk even now.

We spent so much time in the last few days enjoying the sun at this upstairs window that it’s only fitting we enjoy a sketch at this window to end the weekend—but not a bright sunny day. Just now as I carried the laundry upstairs Mimi ran ahead and jumped up onto the wardrobe, and crouched to watch the back yard gather darkness in a pose very characteristic of her. I dropped my laundry and grabbed the charcoal/pastel pad and a blue pastel that approximated the color of light and quickly sketched. She got up and came over to see what I was doing, but obliged me in returning to her spot in the approximate posture she’d been in. Now that’s a professional.

I will also add that this was the very sketch pad Mimi questioned and rejected because it was black, and so is she. She’s on my lap, getting over that.
