Old Friends

It's been a stressful week with Tobermory goat going downhill and finally dying yesterday on ANZAC Day. After he'd been put down I sat on the sofa and drew portraits for two hours which helped calm me down somewhat compared to Wednesday at art group when I was so distracted I barely got anything done.

I have finally finished hanging my paintings round the house. In the hallway by the front door I have hung "Old Friends" which was my Art Hawkes Bay entry earlier this year. The dog is my Mishka whose life is dominated by two things: an insatiable need to eat and his compulsion to lick the backside of any living thing. Also cats rule his world but he takes this as a matter of course.

This coming week I have a few goals to complete. Firstly to finish another folder of work for TLC course. Secondly complete the cat pendant as well as four cat brooches that have been ordered by a shop. Thirdly work out what paintings I am going to enter for the Otane Arts Exhibition over Queen's Birthday weekend. Fourthly get back to spinning and finally try and get some more writing done. I also have lots of outside work to do before the weather finally turns bitter. Better get on with it.....
