Art Imitates Life Once Again!

Here at the Lilypad, we are all just beginning to learn about Blueberry

What a Fabulous Rabbit She is!!

Many months ago, I posted a picture of a Cat I had painted for the Chick.  This Cat was painted when our beloved Jobie was still in his Fur Suit.  It was a Black and White Cat, but it was not our Jobie.

We didn't know who this Strange Mystery Cat was.

It looked like a girl.  She had extra big ears.  She had...too many fingers-- maybe even (gasp!) THUMBS!  Observe:

A few years later, when we met Lilly, it all made sense. While digging through a stack of old stuff, I pulled out that Cat painting and said to Zoe, "AH HA! It was foreshadowing for Lilly!!"

And then, there's this painting:

I have posted this Rabbit painting before on this blog in relation to our dear friend, Ken.

When I painted this painting, it was the same story.  I said to Zoe, "Sorry, Zoe, I know this isn't you.  And, I don't know Who it is.  But this is Who I felt like painting."

Zoe rolled Her eyes.

Foreshadowing strikes again!!!!

And, aren't we glad it did.

Congratulations on the growing family.

With your amaing prescience, maybe you should try painting lottery numbers! Then Zoe and Blueberry could live in the true movie star style to which they should become accustomed to :)
