Look everybuddy... HH painted a picture of the wonderful  Squashies dancing....  Isn't she cute? HH wanted  me to tell Squashies mom thanks for sending in the picture.  She was lots of fun to paint.

It's a TGIF dance I'm sure.  Hope you all have something special planned for the weekend.  We're gonna try that photo shoot again. Hopefully, Knuckles won't mess it up by stealing bread or something worse.

 Have Fun!!!

hugs, Bugsy

Bugsy's report on the photo shoot...

Bugsy here... I had hoped to make it through the photo shoot this weekend with just a shred of our dignity in tact, but Knuckles was determined to make a spectacle of himself once again.... and once again, over bread.

Here's how it all went down.  HH had a piece of bread on the plate she was preparing in the kitchen.  She knows better, but she turned her back for just one split second and whoosh.... Knuckles swooped in and grabbed it..... 

Now, we all know our parts in the drill over here.  My job, in such instances, is to chase Knuckles around the house.... to keep him on the move, so to speak... so he doesn't have time to eat the bread. Once he gets good and tired, I chase him to the kitchen and HH grabs for the bread.  

It works every time, and here's a picture of Knuckles just before he reluctantly (even heard a little protective growl from him) relinquished the bread...

It's mine I tell you... It's mine!!!

Needless to say, the photo shoot is on hold.

Easy LIke Sunday...

This little guy decided that Sunday was not a day to take it easy.  Someone posted on his picture on Facebook that he was going for Frequent Flyer Miles.  That might be true, but HH just loved his energy, so she painted him at full speed ahead.

We're hoping to rest today.... Never know though.... Bugsy always finds something for us to get into.

Have a great day.

hugs, Knuckles

Happy Weekend Everybuddy

HH says she never has the camera handy when it counts.  Well she caught me in the bag a while ago, so she does catch a few, but Knuckles flew from the top of the refrigerator and in the next breath, I bounded to the top of the bedroom door and balanced there for a long time.  HH used to try to get us down, but now she just lets us stay there as long as we want cuz we'll just do it again.  So this weekend is going to be a photo shoot and we'll have some new pictures pretty soon.

Till then... Here's one HH painted today.  He's colorful fellow for sure.

Have a great weekend, everbuddy.

This guy would have been perfect for St. Patrick's Day.

Thankful Thursday.... Blog Hop

Thankful Thursday..... We're participating in the blog hop sponsored by Pepi the Smart Dog again.... And this week we're thankful for all our blogger friends. We've done  better at visiting, but we are still trying to get around more.

HH continues to be busy with her painting. She has only two more commissions and she'll be ready for more. If there's anyone out there who needs a portrait painted, send her an email at maxthequiltcat AT gmail DOT com.

Everybuddy have a great Thursday.

Toooona Tuesday with Knuckles....

Good morning pals...It's Toooona Tuesday.  I have put in my order for Tuna Souffle, Tuna quiche, Tuna Pancakes, Tuna Salad, Tuna Juice and Tuna Pie.   HH said she is not sure she has time to cook all of those, but she is gonna try.  In the meantime, please help me eat this tuna sub while we wait.

You just gotta love Tuesdays.

Hope you have a wonderful day planned.

Oh.... and here's another of HH's paintings for the 30-Day March Madness challenge....

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Good Morning Pals and Happy St Patrick's Day to everybuddy.....  We're trying to talk HH into giving us a little corned beef, but it's probably not going to happen.  In the meantime, we're gonna get our Easy on over here...Hope you have a wonderful day and all the luck of the Irish.

 Here's a little cutie that HH painted this week... Just thought you might want to see her.

Thankful Thursday

We are taking part in the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and thought that it's appropriate to be thankful this first time for the Blog Hope and for Pepi Smart Dog hosting it and for Zoolatry sending us a reminder because we are a bit forgetful. 

Oh... And here's one of HH's latest paintings for the 30 day March Madness Challenge... Cats is motion.

HH painted a painting yesterday that didn't meet her standards.. Today, she covered the canvas with gesso and painted this pen and ink cat over it.... She must have used too much gesso, cuz (hee hee) the cat slid halfway off the canvas..... oops...

Have a great day.... B and K

Bugs on Yesterday's Lunch

Happy Monday everybuddy..... We thought we weren't going to get to blog today, but HH finished her cat and made some time for us.

 Yay... Well, we need to tell you that HH and Flat Max went over to visit the Zooaltry yesterday.  A great time was had by all. Flat Raz  and his humom from Friends Furever was there and Auntie El, and Dee from TK Furrever Home.  Flat Max got to meet Flat Raz and poofy Zoey and Maggy.  What a thrill it all was. 

Everybuddy had a great lunch and lots of lots of wonderful talking.  HH asked us to tell Zooaltry thanks for everything.  Wonderful day.

This morning HH did paintin #10 of the Cats in Motion series.  Here's a peek at it.

He's sneaking up on someone, right?

Have a great day, everybuddy... B

Easy Like Sunday....

Knuckles already has his easy on... I'm not quite there yet, but it won't be long.  It's chilly in Florida today.  Our Bird TV window is all fogged up from the cold, so I guess we'll just have to nap the day away.  Not a bad life.

Hope you all have a great Easy Like Sunday.

hugs, Bugsy.

It's Saturday....

Knuckles here......  Look at this... We blogged yesterday and here we are blogging again today already. When that other painting challenge started, it didn't work that way.  Our blogging stopped.  We are thrilled that HH is living up to her part of the deal and that we'll be able to blog even when she is in a painting frenzy.

What do you have planned for Saturday?  We were gonna play around the condo, but HH says we have to sort our toys cuz there's a new puppy at the studio and we need to share.  

And here she is.  Her name's Sophie and she's all white, she's smaller than we are. Can you believe that. We have not met her yet, but we hope too one day. (Oh...Oh... I just heard HH mutter, "Fat chance"... ) Well... we hope  we'll meet her one day.  Anyway this is Soph...

That's the picture HH took of her day before yesterday on her second day at the Studio.  She's the puppy of Susan who is one of the artists, but Sophie comes to the studio to be with all of them everyday.  

For some reason, Bugsy and I are not allowed to go to the studio.  However Sophie is allowed... why is that.  HH says that it's something about  if'n we boys went to the studio, we'd be getting into the paint and flying from the top of the easels.  We were gonna dispute that, but it's probably true. 
Have a wonderful Satruday everybuddy....

March Madness: This is day 2 of March Madness and if'n you want to see today's painting. You'll find it at It's Raining Cats, Dogs, and an Occasional Cow.

Bugsy with A Special Announcement

Good Morning... Bugsy here with a special announcement. See the tie... you know it's a special announcement if HH makes me wear my tie... so here goes....

Today is March 1st and March Madness starts today.  Yes, that's another 30-day painting challenge and HH's theme is Cats in Motion.

Well... that's not exactly the announcement.  HH has decided to not disrupt the flow of our blog with a whole month of paintings like she did in January.  (See I told you she promised we would get to blog). So she and Sheila (another painter from the studio... she specializes in dogs, by the way) have gone together on a blog called....

It's Raining Cats, Dogs, and an Occasional Cow

Cute, huh.  Well they are going to post all the paintings over there.  Oh HH will put a little thumbnail here to remind you .... like the one belwo, but all paintings will be posted over there for your uninterrupted viewing pleasure.

You are welcome and encouraged to sign on to follow over there by email or by the follow gadget thingy or just drop by occasionally when you have the time... (but... but....if'n you do sign on, Knuckles and I will get a little extra kibble tonight.... just sayin'.... =^..^=) 

March Madness... Day One "Cats in Flight)
