hand painted plate , wall art , by Sandy Mastroni for etsy

If you are around my age ... maybe you will remember this Beatle song { sung by John Lennon }
and SING ALONG ....

A bad little kid moved into my neighborhood
He won't do nothin' right , just sitting down and looks so good
He don't want to go to school and learn to read and write
Just sits around the house and plays the Rock and Roll music all night
{ Bad Boy }

Drawing on a plate { so much fun } ....... I don't plan it out , just go for it and see what happens
Original drawing on an off white plate
This bad little boy is in my etsy shop { other plates are there too ! }

do you remember this song ???????

My cat Buddy { in my studio }


I cleared up the mess on my table so I could get to work and make a new mess , I turned around , came back and there ..... was .... Buddy !




" Buddy , I have to get to work . Could you find another place to sit ? Go look out the window , go bother your sister { Holly } "

 No ..... this is good , I'll just stay here



This is a good spot


" Well , I have to move you , I will put you in my bed , make a tent for you , a nice spot to take a nap "

and then .... that sad sad face

This is Buddy . He's with me ALL the time .  Some cats are the best , most lovable , sweetest cats ..... Buddy is one of the best { ever }
If you ever thought about getting a cat ............ get a cat ...... now . today .... ha ha
