Recent Adorableness

It was time for a Lion photo that didn't feature the velvet armchair, so Possum helped me create some portraits. He says these are inspired by the watercolors of John Singer Sargent, his favorite painter and mine:


We both thought the background for these could use some work, but Lion and Toffee's poses and expressions were right — reminiscent of Sargent's "casual" (oh-so carefully posed) scenes of his sister's family relaxing in rustic European landscapes and hotel rooms. 




In this photo, taken after our formal session, our models are listening attentively to one of Possum's stories about Mr. Sargent in Venice. Everyone wants to go there and spend hours floating around in a gondola (and then eating all kinds of fish, no doubt, says Possum) like Sargent did. Including me.
