I spent the last few weeks creating idea boards, studying other artists, and had all my tools laid out. I only have until they of the week. I thought I was set but I had a few moments. It’s strange that the pieces that turned out were miniature Angry birds. Working the clay I use to create my realistic miniatures made it too soft and pliable. My mini Batman had an accident and decided to remain tipped at a 45 degree angle.
The only thing that save this weekend was my visit to a local French pastry shop for breakfast. At least, I had good food. And those food miniatures of donuts and croissants also turned out well. The other pieces will remain in my box of “experiments.”
Luckily, I have my blog because it’s going to be my escape from not sleeping to meet deadlines and creating new sculpture pieces. Last week, I set the theme for all cat lovers. Well, I shouldn’t ignore another popular pet – dogs. There’s a reason their called “man’s best friend” instead of cats. Hmm, I don’t think cats care because they understand their own nature.
Taking this a bit further, I remember seeing posts on social media that showed a picture of their dog next to the their own. The results were hilarious because many of the owners looked similar to their four legged friend. If anyone ever gives you a hard time during the day, remember that. Picture them as a pet and you’ll laugh instead of being angry.
Something else interesting is hearing other people who won’t date someone who doesn’t get along with their pet. Maybe that’s a warning sign for the other party anyway – you hold their silent opinion higher than a potential partner.
Your thought for today is to think about what happens when an avid cat lover moves in with a avid dog lover. Will their relationship survive? Want to challenge yourself? Write for 5 -10 minutes from the point of view of the pets instead of the owners.
