My piece for Out of the Shire, a Tolkien inspired show at Gallery Nucleus. (look at that line-up!!). Opening on December 14.
(Did a first piece featuring Gollum, screwed it up, had to start another one … and I went with the first scene that popped in my mind. Hope the show isn’t nothing but Eowyns or Witch Kings…!)

Kitten Completes Record Number of Chin-Ups
Last Thanksgiving, Duchess the cat was made the butt of family jokes when she was unable to complete even one chin-up. This year, she’s been training hard to make sure that doesn’t happen again.
The kitten has been doing Crossfit four days per week since June in an attempt to build up strength. Yesterday, she completed a personal best seven chin-ups.
"We’re really proud of her," said trainer Tamara Cole. "When she first joined the gym she was this little bit of a thing who could barely even pull herself up onto the bar. Now she’s hard as a rock."
