Here are two drawings Illo Fridays "Captured". While I was trying to figure out how to draw the second one I reaized that the wall had captured a beam of sunlight. My kitchen is not empty like this, I wanted to keep it simple. The second one is of my dog Bridget when she was about 8 months old. She loved snooping around the dishwasher while I was loading it, hoping for some lost scraps. The last time she did it the loop on her collar droped over one of the posts in the rack so when she backed up it started to rattle and follow. That scared her so she pulled quicker and harder which sent dishes flying, the dishwasher "beast" was still attached! She was yelping and jumping and dishes were bouncing around, I know in her doggie mind, the thing, grabbed her and was following her. Needless to say, that ended that bad habit!

Excellent drawings! The one with your dog is very cute and funny - probably not funny at the time, but makes for funny moments to look back on. Nice work.
