Not a helpful aid / Assistant non-aidant

Let me assure you that kittens can be very determined to side track you and demand attention. There are many times when FÉLIX will tuck in and sleep as I paint, but this was not the weekend.

Les chatons exigent l’attention quand ils choisissent que c’est le temps de jouer. Quand on ajoute des pots d’eau, des tubes de couleurs et une nappe en plastique, des fois FÉLIX trouve que c’est trop difficile d’être sage.

This weekend I was all installed to paint, having spread a plastic tablecloth, put my 2 pots of water on the table, chosen my watercolours and sketched the scene. I made the mistake of getting up for a glass of water. The photo shows what happened to my seat.

Lorsque le tout était fini et j’ai mis mon aquarelle de côté pendant que je nettoyais ma surface de travail. Et voilà, FÉLIX assis à côté de ma peinture.

FÉLIX has brightened my life and given me new purpose in retirement, but sometimes it is crucial to remember one’s motivation when under siege.IMG_2838<a
