Daily Sketch Reprise: Milling About

I enjoyed watching them milling about in the kitchen thinking dinner would be served at any minute. How to tell there were three? Actually, I had wanted more, but this was enough. From front to back, it’s Mimi, Mewsette and Giuseppe.

My hands and feet were busy today and though I had a sketch in mind from their general company on a day like today I never got to it. Interesting, however, that I had been planning colors of pastel and outlined cats milling about, slightly different from this one but along the same theme. I rarely look at what daily sketch was published on “this date” last year before I get around to publishing in the evening, but I’ve found more than once that the medium or style I’d used or planned to use was similar to the sketch from that date last year. I don’t know that it means anything, but it is very interesting to me.
