Whiskerlicious and One for Me/One for You

It’s spring—some are kicking up their paws in celebration.It’s spring—some of us are working like dogs to support those who are kicking up their paws.

Winter blues are being shed along with…..a LOT of fur.
Eddie says, what’s a little hair among friends?
I say, I’m all for having my cake and eating it too—but I draw the line at ingesting a whisker 😉
Cupcake anyone??

Eddie and I are keeping this painting.
Since Eddie has more than a few fans (dear lord, I hope he isn’t reading this) I feel very guilty not having it available for purchase.
Guilt does have its advantages though—I decided I would do  a giveaway 🙂
There will be 3 Winners drawn from the entries.
Now, I feel MUCH better!!
P.S.  I leave for France in about 3 weeks.  I’ll be there awhile (like a month and half).  You should probably begin praying now for all the poor French folks who are going to have this hillbilly accent inflicted on them 🙂  This means that YOU should be getting your watercolor journal goodies all in order—I am going to be making it as real as I can for you to be right there with me:)))!  Hugs to you and enjoy this beautiful Memorial Day week-end!

    Hi Dreama, I see Eddie Bill is up to his catie tricks again, but you’ve got to love him. He is such a trickster, sneaky, but very loveable little cat in his own tricky ways. Have fun in France and may the Cat Gods be with you, or Eddie in another cat form ,may be waiting for you out there. I look forward to seeing you there! 🙂

    Adorable cheeky chappy!
    I love this painting, Dreama. Eddie Bill has good taste in art. :
    Thanks for this sharing this with us via this giveaway. You are a generous soul, my friend.
    Looking forward to our collective virtual adventure in France next month. Are you packed yet? Have the two Eds asked to come along with you? I’m sure they’re discussing the ‘plan’ as we speak. 🙂

  8. Holly Rose

    Oh Dreama, I would be delighted to have a print of Eddie Bill. Plus it would be one cat I don’t have to feed.

  9. Nancy Myers

    Hi Dreama – Just wanted to say I have been in a bit of a slump lately; tossing more boards than I am buying, avoiding my just-started web site because nothing looks worthy and generally being unmotivated. And . . . jealous that I can’t join you in France. So after a brief meditation this morning, your suggestion to get back to watercolors and follow you to France was a message from the universe. Thank you again for saving my soul one more day.

  16. Sharon Hodges Trainor

    I am so envious that you will be going to France soon. Hope I can get in on the next one. Will be watching for 2015 sign-ups. You did this painting just so Eddie will have a reminder that you will fly home again soon! Or maybe, it will be in your suitcase to France and back? He sure is cute. Love the painting especially your bright beautiful colors.
