Sneak Peek


My cats, today after one got painted and received eyes, and the other was primed with a coat of gesso. The 2nd photo was taken before the paint job. Next time you see them the little cat will be painted with rich reds and other jewel tones; my taste totally!

The idea is that the kids will WANT their cats to look like this.

I put my foot down today. A couple of 5th graders were showing their bratty sides, and I didn't like it. I told them they would HAVE to step out of the box and try to paint their cat with rich colors and designs. If they want to change the look of their cat when they get it home, that's fine. But they will start out MY way.

    1. I can't believe anyone would look at your awesome example and still want to paint it camoflauge-- or whatever they were trying. I have a feeling it's bc it might be labor intensive... can't wait to see what the finished ones look like!
