Skateboard dog / Wet noodle

What do you do when you've run out of interesting little things to paint? Yes!, you go across the street to neighbor-artist-friend Sam's house and poach some things from there.

I love the little guy's shadow--it reminds me of a Lascaux cave painting. Can't you just picture all those grimy, hirsute cavepeople out stalking the fearsome wooden skateboard dog?

Remember: don't be a wet noodle. Play with one instead!

Like I said, who could argue with a shadow?

Jala, Darling little painting.

Wish I had a neighbor to poach from, this is nice Jala!

The mushy shadow is the perfect counterpoint for the sharp edges and perspective of the wooden toy.

I'm impressed no end at how you achieve that.

Does the Lynxman look like he's getting darker ear tips?
What we love about kitties: they're so easily engaged.
And then they segue right into nap mode.
Ahhh, if only.......
He's terrifically adorable.

Thanks, all!

Bonnie--are his ears really getting darker? Quite possible. I see him every day and don't notice. What an astute Lynx-adorer you are!
