Although she took a few hours off to enjoy dinner with us at one of our favorite restaurants, La Laiterie – http://lalaiterie.farmsteadinc.com/ , our friend Sara Lee has pretty much been painting non-stop, powered almost exclusively by Chex party mix and the Gypsy Kings. As you can see much has happened since the last pictures.
I inadvertently insulted Sara Lee by asking her if the animals were going to have eyes – her head almost exploded and she started invoking her many advanced art degrees by using 9-syllable art words which I think mostly meant – What are you? An idiot? After many mea culpas and an offering of tea to appease the artist, I think she forgave me. Apparently I was being a little impatient, as you can see below.
The walls simply look amazing and Catherine and I are truly lucky to have such a talented friend give us such an awesome present. Hopefully our daughter will like it as much as we do.
Which animal in the room likes treats? Maggie has been very anxious with all the activity, so we appeased by giving her, her favorite thing in the world – a Kong ball filled with Peanut Butter. It’s the equivalent of doggie crack since Maggie will do just about anything in order to get one and it keeps her completely occupied for about 45 minutes.
We’ll post more pictures after Sara Lee finishes the room today. -t
