This morning I went to Hobby Lobby in search of the smallest detail brush I could find, and cobalt blue. I haven't had access to cobalt blue for several months and I will need it soon for several of my paintings. Syd is in and out today as it is raining. He likes to come in and go out in the rain because I dry him off in between his trips. I think he knows he is the subject of this new painting....although I am not for sure about that. It may just be that he likes to be on top of whatever I am paying attention to.
