Siamese Cat Shadows

Dove into some old digital files for today's Shadow Shot Sunday.  This one is from December 2008.  I'd shown a previous one from the same time in which Sputnik was yawning and looking fierce.  The above shot is before the yawn, so she's looking sweet and content. I hope everyone is having good weather and a good weekend.  Drop by Hey Harriet's blog to join this shadow shot meme and view photos from around the world.

I'll be doing a sumi ink and watercolor nude figure painting soon based on this drawing.

This is a sketchbook, so keeping my pages neat and clean has been a challenge.  The acrylic I had applied on a previous page got messy and ended up all over on different pages.  Finding a clean page is impossible now, so I'm working around these spots.  I might paint her skirt to make the spot less obvious.  We'll see. Waiting You've been gone ten days now, four more. You call. Your voice calms the raindrops and wakes the sun. I miss you more than I could have predicted. I'm cold at night, can't sleep. Every morning the canvas stares hard at me, the brushes and oils have given up speaking to me. I wander from room to room  watch a
