I already sort of blew my wad on my art sidekick in last week’s Studio Friday. My heart-felt thanks to all the wonderful comments that led to this week’s topic. I so look forward to seeing all the sidekicks that were described in my comments as well as many others!
I could take more pictures of Miss Penny. However, Poodles do have a tendency towards pomposity so I decided to let that sleeping dog lie.
I started thinking about other sidekicks. I envisioned cheerful little songbirds, their glorious songs filling my attic studio, propelling me to spectacular creative heights!

But then, I came back to earth and faced reality. Selecting new members of our family would involve my crazy-maker husband Len. Len would certainly have a hand in the selection and a vision started to fill my mind. We’d probably end up with a talking bird that probably would have an entire vocabulary of rude sayings that wouldn’t reveal themselves until we brought our new little family member home.

With a sidekick like that – who needs an inner critic? Well, at least he has some rhyming abilities! So, on second thought. I’ll just stick with my current sidekick. Where is she right now you may ask? Well, fast asleep in her kennel. A night owl she isn’t. Hummm, an owl...they don’t talk...do they?
