inspiration

We got off work a little late tonight, but Tom and I managed to get our tired butts over to the gym anyway. That will be three nights in a row, by the way. That’s the first time in over a month we’ve accomplished such a feat.

When I got home, I rummaged around on my Mac Mini, looking for inspiration. I stumbled upon some drawings of this silly kitty character I was working on a few months ago. He is a composite of our three cats, and the subject of a project I’ve been working on with my mom. She and I had, and still have, this idea of each creating our own line of greeting cards. We’ve even came up with a logo for our endeavor, a combination of our names, Marion and Linda. Get it? Get it?

(By the way, I’m too lazy to figure out how to code the logo, so it tucks into the type.)

So there’s me with the goofy kitty character and over the past couple of years, my mom has created some beautiful oil and acrylic paintings. Some of my favorites are of a panther in tall grass, and one of a wolf framed by autumn foliage. She has become really quite empassioned and prolific with her painting and I find it very inspiring. Maybe it’s time we got serious about the greeting cards again.

For now, inspired though I may be, it’s a chore just keeping my eyes open. I think I’ll sleep on it. Good-night.
