So, I finished the full-sized drawing of Man,Dog, Phone, and Parrot. I guess I could add chain link fence to the title, but that would be too long.
I cheated. I started to draw the stairs, got them so out of perspective, that I just decided to make a cubist design out of the background. I just spoiled the illusion that I’m a really creative artist, didn’t I?
I’m taking a leave of absence from work. With all the physical and emotional stress, it just seemed a good idea, at least better than quitting, which I was on the verge of doing.
In some ways, the story would make a good comedy. Like all good comedies, it includes flatulence. It also asks the profound question, is it okay to call out of work with gas?
But I digress..this is supposed to be an art blog…and speaking of this….
I really should go back to drawing people. I guess I got away from it, it seemed too much like work.
I had decided to do landscapes, thinking they would capture a mood. I think I’ve run that one into the ground.
So, in my time off, I plan to do some drawings of people. For instance the one in the header is “Halloween”. Can’t do too much right now, because as usual, I’m running out of money and paper at the same time. Both issues are soon to be relieved.
Then of Course, there’s the occasional kitten.

Surprise, I actually am doing housework, among other things. You see, I had scheduled this week off since January. A friend from overseas was going to be visiting. So. due to COVID-19, he wasn’t able to come. I have a week to get things done.
It’s spring now, and I can hear spring birds tweeting. Ironic, huh?
So, besides cleaning, I’m going through my artwork, seeing what to do with what. I’ve decided to do small stuff for a while, since I’m not too pleased with the full-sized pictures I’ve drawn.
So, into bottom of the flat file we go!
That flat file seems bottomless…we’ll see how it goes

Good afternoon all! It was a good afternoon, until I coughing. So, hoping for the best,
In the meantime, I haven’t heard of a virtual contagion of coronavirus, so anyone reading this blog is safe.
But cat lovers rejoice! Let me remind you that for us, it’s St. Gertrude of Nivelles Day, the Patron Saint of Cats. Yes, we don’t have to eat corned beef and cabbage, if we don’t want to. We don’t have to care about snakes, when we have these delightful, purring creatures to celebrate.
So, without further commercial interruption: Cats!
Meow For Now!
