Muffin - a finish

Well, I tried and tried with this little Muffin, but she didn't like the background....so, I resigned myself to her *druthers*...and I said, Miss Muffin, this is your painting, and you tell me what you want it to look like. And...this is what came of it. She wanted to be seen as being in spirit....and DOH...I would have never guessed that. She wanted mom to know that she hears her, sees her, and sometimes visits her, but she's not in the flesh. And so, I actually feel as though Muffin is satisfied with this. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

And she wanted me to know that sometimes when I stay up late at night...........I get a little crazy.



Strathmore. Cold Press, 18 X 15, Holbein and vanGogh watercolor paints.

LOL You're too kind Yorky! I'll probably soften it a bit.

Presented this through e-mail to *mom*. She was very pleased, emotional and said it truly was little "Muffy". We both had a good cry.

Beautiful painting, Becky. Love the colors in the background, too. By the way, does Muffin know the winning lottery numbers for tomorrow night?

Muffin is very lucky! I like the fluffy hair in her face.
