"Made in the Shade" SOLD

“Made in the Shade”

8 x 8in oil on museum quality panel

Well, here’s the deal.  Eddie, as you may remember, has been taking acting classes.  Yep, acting classes as in “I’m gonna be a star in Hollywood someday” and has now become obsessed with preserving his looks.  I caught him writing down the number on one of those infomercials the other day pertaining to “face lift” in a bottle, which has led to the debacle you now see painted above.  Phyllis has been following him from spot to spot, holding the parasol over him.  Seems he saw one of the shar-pei “wrinkle” dogs and is now  afraid he’s getting premature wrinkling from the UV rays.
I don’t think fur wrinkles, at least not on cats, but hey—a girl gets her kicks when and where she can.  I have been deliberately asking him if he’s getting enough rest because he looks “tired” in the face.  You have never seen a cat move so fast to the bathroom to apply more anti-aging creme on his fur…

Ahhh…some days it’s good to be me annoying Eddie.

Note:  This is No. 7 in the Eddie and Phyllis Series.

P.S.  Besides–guess who got a card for Halloween?  Not me…

Someone named Coco–who thinks Eddie is really handsome–has a painting of him hanging in her bedroom….

    Hmmm. Time to be jealous of Eddie. Halloween cards in the mail? And his own fan to carry the UV umbrella? Really?
    I think eddie needs to come to California. He can stay with us as long as he brings you along. Perhaps you should come sometime on or near December 19th …ReplyCancel
