Daily Sketch Reprise: Three for Dinner

Some things never change, I was going to do another sketch very much like this one this evening, but the day was so full I missed the chance and several others. Now I see last year on this day we were doing very much the same thing.

Three cats having dinner, seen from above, Jelly Bean at the top, Mewsette to the left and Mr. Sunshine to the right. I love how each has their habits of how they hold their ears and tails while they eat, and how they interact with their dish. But it’s always just a nice moment to watch them eat a meal, I can just feel the happiness, and hear the purr.

I actually wanted to continue last night’s theme of color with black outline, but there was no way I’d be able to finish it while they ate. Their bowls aren’t blue, they are actually clear tempered glass, so I thought I’d add a bit of color that way instead of using a typical gray to indicate something transparent with shadow and highlight. I’ve always liked black and turquoise!

  • Yes, a typical but somehow comforting scene. I have so many photos of my cats curled up together but in a way, that continuity is one of the sweet spots in life, isn’t it?

    • Teri, I look at my house evolving in photos all the time, and it’s just this year, after losing Cookie and Kelly, that I’ve been able to enjoy that slow change.
