Smudge and Willow
Behind every successful artist is one (or more) trusted assistants. Luckily for me, I have Smudge and Willow. I can count on them for many things, including:
Unwavering love and support…
A frank cat-ique of my paintings…
Willow cat-iquing a painting
Shredding paper towels when I need them…

And generally keeping an eye on things.

They also do a great job keeping my painting area free from winged intruders and, on occasion, they even model new color combinations.
Of course, after a hard day in the studio, Smudge and Willow always take a well-deserved nap.
