I live in a rural farming area in the state of Iowa, USA. My calico cat, Paisley, has to be near me when I paint, as if she is making sure I am doing it properly. But truthfully, I know that she is just waiting for me to walk away from the easel for a minute so she can STEAL one of my brushes! Yes, Paisley is a thief! You wouldn't believe all the places I've found my missing brushes!
