All About The Boys — HH gave us ALTITUDE

Since I’ve been posting every day and barely mentioning the boys, I’m making this post all about them to show you they have received their share of attention lately.

On my painting table is a file box with a box called Believe (in the photo below, it’s the box with the “Be Brave” painting in front of it). Both of the boys like to sleep in the Believe box while I’m painting.  One day, Bugsy got a wild idea and jumped from the Believe box onto the shelf above the windows.  Freaked me out!!!!

 

He tiptoed along the shelf then jumped down onto my drawing table.  Knuckles couldn’t figure out how to get up there, but was itching to do so.  With all the paint below, it was driving me nuts when the Bugsy would lunge for the shelf and Knuckles would fret from below.

So… I decided to make it easier for them to reach the Altitude they wanted and to get down from there too.  Here’s their new system…

And here they are using it for the first time…

And here’s their new Sunday Selfie.  Gina took this picture of them happily sitting on the shelf.  Eveyone should have a place to get high…. ooops …. maybe I should say, Everyone should have a high place… MOL!

As always we are participating in the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop put on by The Cat on My Head blog. Please join in.

Have a great week…

hugs, HH (Lou), Bugsy, and Knuckles

Today’s flower is pure whimsy. This is Day 10 and this abstract flower reminds me of cotton candy.  Sweet and fluffy.  Enjoy!

30 in 30 – Day 6

Day 6 - SM

30 in 30 – Day 6

6″ x 6″ x 1.5″

acrylic on cradled board

It’s been raining on and off here for three days.  I think I want to go for a walk in that field of daisies… how about you?  Yes, if it’s Day 6, it must be time for a daisy or two.  Here’s a whole field to brighten your day.

Speaking of brightening someone’s day.  Bugsy made Knuckles very happy on Sunday by sharing with him.  Bugsy, in his enthusiasm to jump in my lap, made a quick trip by my breakfast and in the process stepped on my English muffin. 

A minute or two later, I looked over to see Bugsy licking his left front paw.  I looked at my plate and the butter on my English muffin was smashed. 

The “brightening the day” part:  When I looked back at Bugsy, Knuckles was there too and they both were licking Bugsy’s paw.  Such a good boy for sharing.  … my thought was… “You know you’ve been on a diet too long when you get excited about licking butter off your brother’s paw.”

If you’d like to see more of my paintings…. They are in my Daily Paintworks Gallery.

Have a good day…

Lou

Happy Holiday…. I hope you are all having good weather and enjoying a day off.  I’ll be painting, but that’s not work, so it’s all good.
