I was told Mr. Purrcy had a very relaxing "Annie free" day today. Annie had to go into work with me while a super good friend cleaned and polished my hardwood floors. She did a great job but it was so sad at the same time. I have such a beautiful house that we remodeled thinking we would retire here. If you look on the bright side, at least I got to remodel a house with everything that I would want at least once in my life. The other sad note is with the sale of the house only weeks away Mr Purrcy and Miss Squeak will be going to their new home. My soon to be ex said he would take them but he again waited too long to find a place to live and it's very hard to rent a place with animals. Again on the bright side I found a wonderful cat person who will take both my little fur babies in.
Flat Fish Paper Arts was born many years ago when blogging first started. My family did a lot of camping and diving along the California coast. California halibut are huge fish that start out as any normal fish. As they age, one eye will start to move to the other side and the halibut will become flat so it can lay on the bottom of the ocean with both eyes facing up.
I always like the idea that we all start out the same but life experiences slowly changes us. In my case, my creative talents went the way of paper arts. Flatfish are always looking up when they mature and as with any artist, we see inspiration in everything around us - always looking up.

Years ago a local dive shop had a photo of a diver who caught a halibut so big he had to throw it over his jeep to take the picture. Our little spoof with our daughter sitting in her toy jeep with dad's halibut on the hood. 1987
