Paint Party Friday sketch

My Tuesday client was taking a nap, I did some sketching. Our fish tank, whose pump leaked last week, is now fixed. I think it was just a loose connection. I've been checking it daily.
Version 1
I scanned it, but the colour comes out a bit fuzzy. A little bit of play in Graphic Converter....with the addition of a photo stamp of a real mouse, as well as some colour! I totally ignored the curtains. I used a couple of tools I had not used before. It's a learning curve!
The yellow/gold is one of our fridges. actually being black. The previous owners installed two bar fridges, removing the regular full one. It increases counter space. We have a freezer in the basement. They were Brits.
Version 2

I worked from my memory, which has been a bit wonky in my old age! (Not to mention the alignment!) The fish tank is a hexagon, containing 60 gallons. Daisy loves the light, which keep her warm on these cold days. She is only 7 lbs., and hasn't broken the light. Oliver broke two or three tank lights in his day.
Happy, warm Daisy

Nice work, Jennifer. The cats must think to themselves on occasion of ways to get in that tank.

lovely sketches Jenn! What sweet kitties-and I LOVE your bird pics on the side bar!! Lucky you to spot some owls-I so want to see one in my yard...just saw my first robin today-despite the 5 1/2" of snow we have and it isn't done yet here in PA-how dare this happen on the first day of Spring?
Happy PPF!

Glad the tank got fixed... and version 2 is my fave.

Meanwhile we had an eclipse here. I missed it due to the sky falling in. Well, when I say sky, I mean the bathroom ceiling. Yup. 2am crash bang dust-storm... Meant I fell asleep when everyone else was getting ready for the event!

Hey ho... YAM xx

we used to have a large fish tank. It was so calming just to watch. I hated cleaning it out though..........

LOVE your cats - they are so paintable! The pic of her sitting atop your aquarium is fun :)
