I have my easel on my desk


You wanna know why? Cause I've been watching Total Alignment videos from Connie over at Dirty Footprints Studio. :) It's a free class so there's really nothing stopping you to go over there and give it a try.

As you can see, there's really no room on my desk so my easel is usually on the floor. But Connie says you have to paint standing up so the easel landed on my desk. The rest is just my usual mess. Paints and some ATC's in progress.

Charlie the Cat is not in the photo this time. He is actually under my desk sleeping on a piece of paper. Seriously, the cat has comfy chairs, two couches and two dog beds to sleep on and he chooses a piece of paper that was dropped accidentally. Now I don't have the heart to pick up that bloody paper and take away his bed. :) I had to take a photo of him to prove it.

Oh, look. You get to see what I hide under the desk as well. :)

Go check out WOYWW to see what others are hiding. :)

  4. Your canvas is bright and beautiful, I like it! Charlie the Cat picks his place to sleep to cause most inconvenience possibly? That's what my cats do...!!

  5. LOL! Silly Cat! Love the canvas though. The colors are so vibrant! I bet that it is even more spectacular in person! Thanks for sharing your WOYWW (and what is under it!) -Amanda

  6. great looking desk. Love the canvas. My cats will do the same thing about not choosing the comfy chair or bed but a hard piece of paper. One loves to sleep in a paper grocery bag on the floor! Thanks for sharing. Vickie

  7. Sometimes they just want to be near us....in the most strange of ways...haha!

    Mess = Creativity at work :)

  8. I knew it, my dog was a cat in a previous life! She does exactly the same thing, whether it is a piece of paper on the floor, or on the newspaper, preferably when I am reading it LOL
    Love your painting and I watched the TA videos and they look awesome. I want to paint fearless too! I think I will take her advice and buy a mixed media journal XL, the fearless might be easier if I don't feel like ruining expensive canvases ;-)

  10. I was watching her videos too--so fun!
    I love where Charlie decided to nap. I remember when my brother and I used to play board games on the floor--well you can guess where our enormous cat decided to rest
    :)

  13. I had help from my furry friend BoJangles too this morning. He was helping me keep the window ledge next to my desk clear by lying flat out on it. Lol!

    You can just see him if you look closly.

    Have a great and Happy Crafting!

  16. Amazing how cats and children always want to sit or lie on the piece of paper you need isn't it?
    Happy WOYWW

  17. Very bright and cheerful canvas. Cats eh? At least with a dog you know where you are, but cats have a mind all of their own!

  18. And how did you find standing up to paint? I can't craft standing up, so I wonder if it helped or not! Love the owl though he's great. The cat, the piece of paper - well, it's typical even if infuriatingly weird!!

  19. Love the cat on your easel and the cat under your desk. The one on your easel will probably be less trouble, no doubt!

  26. Great post - Charlie is gorgeous. We had an all white cat many years ago and she was found to be deaf. Didn't stop her from doing all the things a cat does to perfection :) Elizabeth x #60
