Still Goghing!

Dear Dawn is amazing. I had a whole day yesterday to do something special. I thought I was going to be spending my day with Liam, but it turned out that he had a date with his GrandmaFarm which I had forgoten about.
So....when Dawn called, we plotted, and she decided to torture my kitty.

Poor Zoot. It was the brightest, sunniest day yesterday and he had finally made peace with the fact that his chair was forever changed. He sprawled out on it, soaking up the rays (can kitties make vitamin D through their fur?) and just wallowed in the loveliness of the day.

Then Dawn showed up. In her white coat. (Her paint smock is a reincarnated lab coat).

With her brushes.

He was in a snit. He was chased off the chair and had to resort to sitting on the back of the couch. He spent the day conspicuously facing away from us. ( He is going to develop white coat syndrome, I swear!)

Dawn did her magic, Levi and Zach amused themselves with Shaun the Sheep DVD's, sketching and generally driving me crazy, Josh cheered us on, Zoot ignored us and pouted,
and I, well I made soup of course.

And I did important "research and development" on the top secret new project that Dawn and I are working on together. (It's going to be really exciting!!)

Back to the chair...Dawn is amazing!
You know how most of the Masters, Vincent included, learned and became great by copying other Masters? Dawn is right up there. The chair is a Masterpiece! The colour and light in the painting are beautiful!

It is a one-of-a-kind, and I can't even begin to tell you how happy it makes me to look at it, sitting here in the sun! If you click on this last photo, you can see that there is just one couple sitting there, on the terrace at the cafe. It's Mr Wonderful and me...we have the place to ourselves!

(Don't you think Dawn should also paint herself in here? Leave me a comment if you think she should).

I'm happy that you're happy with the chair. It's a lot FUN to work on it. In fact, it isn't work it's just plain PLAY ~ wheeee!

But of course, Dawn should be somewhere in the painting(s) Absolutely, without a doubt.

Wow! She should represent herself somewhere...

Say, are you going to share the soup recipe?

What a cool chair!

She can paint herself in as a star.
