Queen Anne

Having gotten a great price for tickets to see the King Tut exhibit in Seattle, Jim and I decided to take the opportunity to stay for a couple days with friends in the Queen Anne area.  They had been friends for many years with Jim and his deceased wife, Suzanne, and have now become my friends, too.  Their condo was very nice, and had a peek-a-boo view of Puget Sound from their front windows and deck.  Sadly, demolition of a house across the street and impending commercial construction on that site will no doubt swallow that view forever.  Progress.  The mysterious, large, Rubbermaid UFO in the construction zone had vanished by the time we returned in the evening.  I see the wisdom of the aliens molding their vehicles out of heavy rubber, in case their GPS fails them.

Pewter Cat Dreams

During the reception at Jim's and my wedding recently, our friend Marian was visited by our cat Duchess as she sat in one of our tub chairs.  Jim had taken a photo of that moment, and it was such a sweet pose, it inspired me to do this sketch.
