there is truly more to this little fellow than meets the eye! among other things, he seems to have his priorities in proper order. here he is, enjoying a few of his favorite indulgences while dinner cooks, or is it supper? he seemed very proud of having a piece of furniture or two that could accomodate 'big people', so i painted him in his favorite chair of that type, usually reserved for a special friend, apparently off on an errand of some sort. you would have a very hard time believing the smallest part of the stories he told me until, that is, you looked him in the eye ( or his tidy little bag of gold and 'jools' ). i was ultimately so impressed with this little chap that by the end of my short stay i made him promise to send me a copy of his manuscript recounting some of his adventures. i can't wait to read it!
