I never quite know what to say when people ask me where I get all my ideas from. I mean, where do you get yours from? But this week the answer really hit me. I totally rely on a combination of my imagination, a reference photo of a model and something I really need to say. This past week I've had a concussion and there were only headaches; no inspirational messages or bursting imagination. And I still needed to do the work! All I could do was paint from a reference photo. I snapped a fun photo of my son's cat Tuxedo, sitting on Matty's trigonometry homework and distracting him from the drudgery ahead.

Tuxedo has an insane amount of super long white whiskers.
