Sacha's Birthday #11!

"Sacha's Favorite Mouse"
pen & ink with colored pencils on brown paper
August 2015 ~ Utrecht, Netherlands

That's our cat Sacha's favorite mouse toy which she's "tormented" for about nine years now. Although she regularly beats it up, sits on it, slaps it across the floor daily, the mouse still "lives". For a cat that turns 11 years old today, Sacha is still pretty much just a "kitten" at heart (and actions) and, of course, a "princess".

Happy 11th Birthday, Sacha! Our "kat-in-klompen".

"Me - drawing "the potager""
June 2015 ~ Château-Chervix, France

Whan I started that drawing/watercolor, the owner of the rental house hadn't hung any clothes on the line. However, the next day when I wanted to finish the pen & ink part of the drawing, she had hung up some towels! Obviously, I had to add them in - even though I think I got the perspective all wrong...lol.

So, lesson learned: "Never put off till tomorrow, what you can do today." - even when you're on vacation! :o)
