Poppies - Part 2

My little guy reported that there was a mouse in our bathroom in the middle of the night. There's only one way that could have happened. Our cat, Tommy, must've brought it in. Here's how it apparently went...and happily, I slept through the entire thing.

• My little guy saw the mouse.
• My little guy ran to get a dog bowl to catch it in. (We need to talk mouse catching strategy with the kid.)
• My little guy's friend started squealing and jumping around.
• The little mouse ran into the living room and they lost track of it.

So I figure one of two things happened after that.

• The little mouse is still hiding somewhere in the house.
• Tommy ate the little mouse.

Time will tell...

And I finished my poppy painting. Here's the finished painting and the last few stages are below.


I started working on the glass vase.
I've always been in awe of those who
can paint glass. I'm super happy with my first effort! 

I added some white flowers and added a
little orange to the poppies.

I added a little more orange to the poppies,
added some purple to the background,
and worked on the wall and the table.
All that was left to do was even out the red
line behind the vase and paint the edges
of the canvas black.
