Most of the time I do my art on my own. No help. No input. But the other night as I sat at our kitchen table sketching and painting, I had my kid's new little kitten keeping me company. He licked a bit at my brush water before I could stop him. He bumped my brush as I was laying paint down. He walked on my painting as it was drying. And after a while he fell asleep partly on my pallet.
