Rainier triplet

Lynxmuffin is growing faster than an elm seedling and is developing quite an Attitude--he went from being a little scaredy-kitten hiding in the corner, to launching full-body wrestling attacks on our cat Miss Lemon, who's always up for that (she has "foster-mothered" every kitten we've ever brought into the house). Lynxmuffin is also a Cheese Monster--all you have to do is open the fridge and there he is, begging for cheese. It's the only time he uses his teeny little voice. And he went from being sleepy-cuddly all the time, to becoming a Perpetual Motion Machine, in just a few days.

I wasn't able to post for the last few days--I hope you missed me!--until The Husband finally just made some tweak and said, "It's working now." What would I do without him? It was hard not being able to post. I was in withdrawal. But at least I had C.M. (Cheese Monster) for company.

P.S. After a miraculous three days without rain, a downpour just happened and my studio roof sprang a whole new leak (no, The Husband still hasn't fixed it). A spaghetti pot has been pressed into service. And now it's time for me to go paint.

Jala, your brush strokes make the cherries dance in the small space. Love the contrast between "real" and paint.
I love the pictures of LM...especially the backlit profile! Enjoy your blush of first love.

Jala, otra muestra de un resultado excelente logrado con una simpleza aparente de la pintura

Great highlights and shadow on the cherries! Like that blue/gray background against the reds too.

Beautiful cherries, Jala - so convincing I can feel their weight and practically taste them!
