Was drawing (or painting, as the case may be) an abstract in oil pastels around midnight.
Just as I was satisfying myself with the smoothness of the pastels on the suede surface, and contemplating the abstract colors and lines, a cat crept into the work.
A nearby bluebird flew onto the canvas, too. I believe we’ve caught it in the act of chiding the cat. Or perhaps it fancies the plumbs in the pool.
By the time I added a signature, the cat’s whiskers had sunburned.
So much for “burning the midnight oils”.
Enjoy!
