Pastel 30 - Deep in a Book

Cats fill the air with sleep when they are napping.  And when they are not napping they can be more insistent than many dogs.

So to stay alert and focused solely on the book, she must be deeply engaged.

This piece began the usual way, where I had no idea of it's destination.  It took a long time and more faith that it would emerge, since I only had the smallest glimmer of her face and her back against a dog.  Then the cats started showing up.  Then more.  Then more.  I think there could have been a few more if I had allowed...
