Have you heard? Corn tortillas are the new hot dog buns?

At least they are in this household. Especially when there is not hot dog bun to be found. 😉

One left over apple chicken sausage on top of one corn tortilla with spinach and ketchup.

Paint Your Pet

The other week I registered for a ‘Paint Your Pet Class’ at Painting with a Twist in South Tampa. I had so much fun the last time I took a painting class at the studio (see post here), that I’ve stayed on the mailing list waiting for something else to catch my attention. When the class popped up – I knew I had to take it.

The class isn’t until next weekend, but yesterday I received this e-mail –

Thank you for your reservation for the Paint Your Pet class next Sunday afternoon. We need for you to send us a color photo of your pet so that our artists can prepare a sketch for you to paint. We need to have all of the photos in to our artists by no later than this Saturday, 9/10 to allow sufficient time for them to prepare all of the sketches.

A photo of our pet, so the artists can prepare a sketch? Hmm…for some reason I had this vision of us bringing our pets in and painting freehand. Obviously, I severely overestimated my painting skills. Ha! The more I think about it, the more having an artist sketch out a photo of our pet ahead of time makes way more sense.

Of course, now I have to actually select a photo to sketch. Which, shouldn’t be too hard, seeing as I have a bajillion photos of Maddie.

And who wouldn’t? Look at that face!

The only question is…. which photo should I choose?

Let’s see, there’s…

And crazy Maddie

I mean.those are my personal favorites, but probably not the right ones.

Here’s what I’ve narrowed it down to of ones that might work:

A)

B)

IMG_3153.JPG

C)

IMG_9304.JPG

Narrowing it down to three was TOUGH, but picking one out of those? Forget it!

That’s where I need your help. Which photo should I bring into be painted?

A? B? or C?

The final product should be… interesting to say the least. 😉
