Apple etc demo

Black eyed Susans and Apples  -  Demo
I 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!

If I lived up there full time, I would be in your class, without question, cat vomit and all, LOL! Sweet demo Catherine.

Sounds like my kind of class! I would love taking a class from you and your cat.

Enjoying your blog, as usual. Those apples look so real...and the black-eyed susans are great in spite of Rudy :-( (At my age) I mostly take my journal/sketchbook out "dining" especially if it's outside :-)
Keep blogging--I'm always keeping up with you!
