Black eyed Susans and Apples - DemoI started my new season of weekly classes this week, and picked some black eyed susans for a little still life. I went back into the room a few minutes later, and the flowers were strewn all over the table, and Rudy the cat was madly devouring the blossoms. I knew from past experience they are only mildly toxic.
Right in the middle of my demonstration, he came in and threw up. Nice.
The bowl didn't turn out the way I wanted, but at least with a demonstration, I am talking as well as painting my way through it. The students get an idea of what and why I feel it is wrong - even if I don't get it right.
Good way to start the new season - I paint wonky bowls and have a cat that throws up in the middle of class. Want to join us here - we're havin' some kinda fun!
