The Bright Ideas Journal isn’t one of them,
Though I picked it up again (found it in the pile is more like it),
and it was nice to be back to line drawings only (or mostly).
A hundred+ pages left to go means this is a long project!
The Bright Ideas began as a memory journal,
mostly about family objects I am giving away to someone who wants them,
while I retain their memory.
I never said all the drawings would be good….
Worst. Shading. Ever.
But I am new to these finny crayons so okay!
Kamala (RIP) loved the red feathered bird and a crazy squeaky blue mouse that
I cannot find (meaning the kittens have carried it off to a hiding place.)
She would kick and toss and generally get a little crazy on her own
Duckmouse is Sammy’s favorite…
It can sooth the slightly psychotic nature of Sam, who is skittery and obstinate and hard to handle… except when he is not! Old age is making him more so! But when Duckmouse is pulled from the toy box he gets all loving, rolling and purring and I do not know what powers this scrappy little felt yellow and green mouse has, but they are formidable!
And BTW, cats see color because how else would they have favorite colors?
