Ever wonder where Kelly got those green eyes of hers?

Kelly does have very bright green eyes, especially when she sits in the sun. I would never question her natural color until today when I walked in on her in my studio…

“Oh, no,” Kelly said, “I’m found out!”

"Oh, no, my secret is out!"

“Well,” she concluded, “I can only say it pays to be an artist’s cat.”

Don’t worry, all materials I use in the house are AP Non-toxic, meaning kids can eat or drink large amounts of them and not be hurt by them. Nothing is without its risks, but I am careful to source my art materials to smaller companies who can generally trace the origins and contents of the materials they use.

And just what was I using that particular shade of green for? The leaf speckles in Daily Sketch: In Afternoon Sun.
