I painted on a black canvas, for the first time. There is a big advantage - somehow its not as scary as a white canvas. I had fun with this - at first glance, the bell is just yellow and the more I stared at it, the more colours I saw.
I bought the bell at a garage sale for my dog. I had the brilliant idea to have her ring the bell when she wanted to go out, but it didn't take. She is sticking to her method. She takes a shoe and drops it on my head when I am sleeping. I have to admit it works. She is a better trainer than I am.
