Yesterday I had quite a few woes, flooded driveway, etc., all of which sadly pulled me away from my studio. This afternoon however, I added the rich blue background and a suggestion of the window Riff Raff is gazing out of.

Thanks so much! I know Riff Raff has been a dear friend to his person. I also know that his person truly rescued Riff Raff and gave him nine years of great happiness. I hope I can capture some of that in this little painting!
