  • "Goat rowed his boat
    With his friend Stoat."

    San Cassimally
  • Art by me, second try. Watercolor on Arches 140 lb. cold-pressed paper. 7 x 10. I painted this last night and this morning. (I am still sick, sometime a little better, sometimes worse.)

    In case you are an American and don't happen to know this, a stoat is a weasel. This one is only 2 inches high. I'd like to paint on larger paper, but this is also for another project and needs to be on small paper.

    I have had the good fortune of seeing real weasels in the wild on several occasions and maybe I will sprout my own story and write about that. LATER.

    I am sick, and we have out of town company coming, which will be difficult and challenging for everyone involved. My step-daughter Sarah and her husband Steve, and we haven't seen them in over a year. (Another story.) Later. (Sarah's story is amazing and very upsetting!)

    We have two daughters named Sara(h), Sara is biologically mine and Sarah is biologically Keith's. We both love them both.
