Day 137

Teddy meets the artist...

I was surprised she responded to me in the way that she did when I asked her to paint me. She was excited to meet me and happy to do it. My owner was shocked, nervous and started to slightly panic. It meant that she would have to meet her and she never thought she would. I told her I'd handle conversations and she wouldn't need to worry and that I'm usually great at breaking the ice.

She rang the bell, and Ghadah buzzed us in. All of a sudden we were on her couch, eating cookies and chatting. Well.. they chatted, I just looked at my cookie. It wasn't that bad now was it, my dear owner? She believes she's accomplished something today and I applaud her (just go with me on this one she lacks confidence sometimes). 

Ghadah will be painting me. Ghadah will be painting a portrait of me on one of her infamous ladies laps. I really can't wait as I love her work and I think I'm starting to love her as a person. She has a cat and so do we, and we share more things in common. She'll be updating her work in progress on one of her blogs for those of you who would like to see the development of her art. 

The painting will be sold for charity at the end of my 365 days. I don't think my owner is going to let anyone buy it. She seems very possessive over the idea of it. For God's sake it's not even tangible yet and she's already saving up. Silly girl. 

Thank you Ghadah for welcoming us into your home and doing this. It really means a lot to us. Say hi to Duncan for me.
