Original oil paintings. Random thoughts and inspiration.
Wednesday, February 13, 2013
So I moved my painting studio from my work office to my home at the beginning of the year. I never had the pleasure/challenge of painting with my kitties nearby. One of the first days of having everything set up and spread out around me Otis comes to see what I am up to. Not even giving it a moments thought he steps right on my palette of paint. Right smack dab on the french ultramarine blue. Oh no! Now what? I grab him right away. I'm holding him in the air thinking now what?? I tuck him under my arm, grab the laptop and run into the bathroom. I google "how to clean oil paint off a cat." I have to clean him first with olive oil, then soap and water. It was quite a process since it spread before it got better. He's no worse for the wear. It was an interesting lesson. What a good boy, sitting still for me to clean him like that. It actually seemed like he thought it was fun. The challenges of working at home!
