Esme the Cat

“You know you are getting old when it takes too much effort to procrastinate.” ~Author Unknown

I’ve been putting off completing (okay – starting) a commission I took long ago.  I finally gave myself a deadline, and actually told the client what it was.  Then I was stuck – I had to do it.  I had a lovely pic of Esme the cat taken by her owner, a highly experience photographer and journalist, so I had a great place to start.

I then rounded up my pastels, and went to work.  Here is the work in progress, along with the final result.  Now I just have to deliver it to Philly – maybe next weekend, or the one after that…

Do you have a good story of procrastination, or of conquering the procrastination devil?  Leave us a comment and share.


During ………During ……… Completed!
