I’ve been watercolor painting again after a whole year’s sabbatical, but SOMEONE thinks my choice of subject matter leaves something to be desired. Why I’ve picked it up again, will be explained further down this post.
Nekoka was kind enough to offer me several poses to choose from for my next painting.
I won’t bore you with his whole reel but suffice to say, I will attempt to meet his poser demands. I tried to tell him my skills aren’t anywhere near ready to take on his handsomeness, but he just urges me to practice, practice, practice…
Bandit and Merlin offer no comment, having their beaks full at the moment.
Did I mention that I quit my job, leaving the computer industry after twenty-five plus years, to pursue a career as a pet sitter? Yep. I did that. I keep trying to put a post together about it but let me just say, I am SO HAPPY to not be working where I was, and SO GRATEFUL that it was possible. My only income right now is from renting out my townhouse back in Pennsylvania, and savings left over from buying my new home here in Tucson. Despite that, this was the best decision I’ve made in years; this enormous weight is off me and the future is wide open.
I’ve signed up to volunteer at a local cat rescue and that makes me feel so good. I’m starting to get my name out there for pet sitting opportunities, and eventually hope to get on at a real pet sitting business. But for now, I’m decompressing and letting what comes come. I will need additional income, but I’m not stressing — which is amazing and part of why I know I’m doing the right thing for me.
And I’m painting again! And so is Lilith, although I’m sticking with watercolors while she seems to prefer vegetable puree.
Grandma’s very happy to see some of the genes from her side of the family showing through! Lilith LOVES to eat!
