Daily Sketch Reprise: Lounging on the Dishtowels, 2012

They were clean, but I didn’t fold them fast enough. Mr. Sunshine is very pleased with his ingenuity. He is also daring me to move him. I think I’d rather sketch what I see.

Pink and Green, 2013

Giuseppe in front and Mewsette behind, the two are hanging in the kitchen under the ceiling fan after dinner. I guess they are cuddling because they love each other, because it’s too hot to cuddle. But even though it’s hot and they are napping, they are still moving just a bit, adjusting, looking sleepily around. I like to catch their ears when they are falling asleep, swiveling around.

Perhaps I’m thinking watermelons in this heat—I certainly was craving some nice cool watermelon yesterday, and, subliminally, perhaps even their elongated shapes suggested it too. Funny how even food cravings can influence my choice of subject, style and color…

Really need some new brush markers now, I think.
