Esteemed sibling and I went into town today to meet our aunt for lunch at the National Gallery. We took the boat in to Embankment, which is a lovely way to travel into London when it’s sunny – the Thames looks all sparkly and everyone seem that little bit happier. After lunch, Aunt and I had a mooch around the gallery, seeing new aquisitions and trying to figure out what some artists wanted to say. Then on the way back to the apartment, I walked along the Thames path (not all the way from London) in the twilight, just enjoying the evening air.
I’ve been doing a bit of family history research lately. It agrees with me, the finding out pointless information that will have no practical application other than to soothe my curiosity. But I have been finding interesting patterns: places and names that keep popping up repeatedly. Strange that you have an idea of where your family should come from but they end up originating from the another area time and again. Maybe that is why we instinctively feel happier in some places than others….
My SIL’s cat passed away, so my brother asked me to draw him and his brother for him. One, the rotund one, is not so much a problem, but his brother is proving problematic. Just too angular so I cannot seem to capture his likeness…these are the ones I have been doing tonight in pen and ink, but it doesn’t seem to matter what medium I use. Hmmmm, maybe I should stick to strange felines.
