Thunderstorms Halt Sleep Moves Mail Art

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Mr. Philo moves the furniture around
the house when thunderstorms are
near. The stools move away from the
kitchen counter, the end tables become
objects of sculpture on his back and
the whole house erupts in panic.

Which means, human companion
(me) gets no sleep.  After administration
of cheese laced with valerian tincture
for a (hopefully) calming snack, I settled
into the big leather chair to await
the passing of the storm.

Minutes turned to hours, a couple of
attempts at sneaking back to bed
proved fruitless, so the studio
proved to be my sanctuary once

The second side of the recycled envelope
kept me busy and sleep finally came at around
3:00 a.m.  for both canine and his companion.

This guy looks as grumpy as I feel…..oh well.
They don’t call em rescue dogs for nothing.

Happy Thursday all  xox

    may tonight be a peaceful restful one for canine and humans alike!
    at least mr grumpy is surrounded by beauty and color – I'm thinking soon that frown will be turned upside down : )

    oh I know …they DON'T call them rescue for nothing! Dharma is good in storms, but does he love to eat! an indiscriminate eater for sure, I have to watch him in the studio, once he ate an entire package of stickers, because the backing tasted good to him… I guess!! hope you get your beauty sleep tonite!!

    I hope last night was thunder free so you could catch up on your sleep. I'm amazed that you feel creative at 02:00am at all, and even more that you did create this piece of art in the middle of the night!

    There's no sleeping through thunder storms here. My husband can but not me. I wish I could be creative at that hour of the morning. Beautiful art created! xxoo
