Too hot to do anything else.

I love how blue her eyes look in the last two pics. They only look like that in sunlight.

Art Unleashed is coming up. The art auction that benefits the Humane Society for Kansas City is Friday August 27. This is my sixth year and I love doing it. This year I contributed two pieces.

Old school chairs were being offered to decorate any way you’d like. So I volunteered to take a chair. I decided I wanted it to be very simple and graphic. I spray painted the entire chair black and then just made a slip cover for the back and a cushion for the seat. I also added a tail that wraps around one of the legs.

I also made a stuffed owl that will be auctioned off too. More pics can be seen here.

If you’re in the area I recommend checking this out. It’s a fun evening with lots of food and fun art work.

Grandma's in town this week. We got some pizza last night and a balloon. Violet was upset that her balloon was all deflated this morning and told me to fix it.
