It has been ages since I have gotten the acrylics out and done any fun painting. When I found myself with a free afternoon and the sun was shining, I decided this was the day!
I don't remember the last time I painted but since I don't recall ever having to deal with the cats while painting, I am guessing it was back when Max was my only cat. Painting and curious cats makes for a very interesting experience.
I was very tempted to let the cats have ago at painting, like in Why Cats Paint: A Theory of Feline Aesthetics but before I give that a try, I need to figure out what paints to use that are non-toxic to cats. (I love this book!)
My goal was to paint some card stock, which I will later cut into cards. Nahum and Theo made every stage of the process very challenging.

Nahum kept trying to run away with tubes of paint.
Then the brushes looked like fun. Theo actually gagged himself trying to play with the brushes.
