Happiness is a messy palette, a mug of tea, a supervisory cat, and a rowdy ancestor.
The smallbook in progress is for Storydello. It's about my great-great-great grandfather, John Stanbridge. He and his brother went to prison for "riot and tumult" after a Bonfire Night celebration that got out of hand. I could hardly wait to finish the research and start painting their exploits. Those guys were bad!
The supervisory cat does not approve. But I suspect there are some dubious characters in her own family tree!
