One Portrait Wednesday.....

With apologies to Vermeer

Yes, yes, it's me Lacie...I do have a new hobby. When my flat self was in England visiting Miss Enid and being tutored in Eat A Cat lessons, she emphasized the importance of daily painting.

LADIES should be schooled in the genteel arts.

Odd pet I own there isn't it? I mean the one watchin' me paint...note his pearl earring....he kept droolin' down my socks.

This artist smock I get to wear is most flattering to my best side, isn't it?

It's all in the perspekhtive...


Gus said...

We would agree that proper lady doggies find painting easier than needlepoint. And you certainly seem to be having a good time


Martha and Bailey said...

We are happy to take up painting Lacie, not sure about the outfit though!

Well done, Miss Lacie. I see that Dear Enid is finally making an impression and having a positive influence on you. Quite charming. The Allegory of Painting. However ... nudes? That was not the style of Vermeer. Perhaps you should allow Peter Paul Rubens to mentor you. His frocks would certainly fit (Jake made me say that.)

Appreciating your cultured new self,

The OP Pack said...

Lacie - great to see you taking up one of the finer arts:)

Love ya lots,

Mango said...

Ew! My face is too close to your bottom. Hey! Don't tell momma to move my cave upstairs! There are mice up there!


Agatha and Archie said...

Darling,perhaps this wasn't really the most flattering angle to show if you know what I mean...Perhaps you should try something else.....Maybe from the front?? Love A+Aantsha

Butchy, Katie, Ruby, Sylvester, Scuby, Hootie said...

Gee Lacie,
Now Katie is bugging me to fly her to your house for painting lessons, hehehehe! Isn't she a bit young for that?? Hmmmm, do ya think Mama will let me wear an earring??

Laci you are a great artist.

Jake of Florida said...

Yes we are entranced by the unique rear view of the artist in all her velvet-clad rotundity -- but what is even more extraordinary is the lifelike rendering of the subject, Naked Terrier with Folded Ears.


Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

(Glad we have heron detente!)

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

I think the velvet really flatters you! And how did you manage to pierce the RH's big floppy ear(s)?

You guys just crack me up! (and I needed that right now)

Love nibbles,

Hollie and Janie said...

Your talents are endless, Lacie!! Your subject is quite handsome!!

Petey said...

Are those cigarette jeans you're wearing, Lacie? Very flattering to your backside!

Your pal,

Oh Lacy,

You have so many talents.

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

doyle and mollie said...

oh lacy next it will be needlepoint... you are so refined! loves and licks

Eric said...

Lacie dear. It warms my wheels so, to see you partaking in such a genteel pastime. Most flattering that you take your mentors words to your dear little square heart. Your picture is - well quite a picture. And your subject matter charming, so much more illuminating than a dog with a pearl earing.

For our next lesson together I do believe I shall teach you the fine art of Lacie Tatting.

With fodest love, Miss Enid xxx
