My Little Assistant

Remember the table I've been promising for a few posts now? It was supposed to be finished this morning, allowing me a rare afternoon off to meet a friend for coffee, running back here in time to photograph and write an eBay listing. But how in the world am I supposed to complete anything with this kind of help!?

Ironically, this piece is called "Cirque du Chats". :)

Do you think Merlin can read? Maybe he's just trying to get into the spirit of things....

I suppose it's my own fault for leaving a paintbrush sitting there as I make tea. At any rate, I just couldn't resist grabbing the camera and snapping these to show you one of my studio assistants at work. :)

The table will no doubt list tomorrow. In the meantime, I'll return from my afternoon coffee break to a few more hours painting. With luck, Merlin will be napping by then.....Wish me luck. ;)

Hehee, I find the four-legged kind to be the best kind of help :)

Ha! you ought to live in this house, 2 silly dogs and 5 nosy cats! You can't even go to the bathroom by yourself in this house, some four legged friend has to escort you!

Cute! My "studio assistant" kitty always tries to drink from the water jar I use to wash out my brushes with.
