I was going to challenge everyone to paint their studio setups, but then looked away from my easel and saw Pete, impatiently waiting for me to finish and take me for a walk. He is really blending into my late Father-in-Law's faded orange corduroy couch (was that ever in style?). Except for his hypnotic-piercing-laser-eye-mind-meld thing ("you want to stop painting and take me for a walk".) That doesn't really blend at all... I am curious to see what surrounds everyone's easels!
Please be sure to follow the spirit and the letter of the challenge.
For example, each submission must be painted after the challenge is posted.
