Buttonwillow Asks: Hey, What's Wrong With Pose A?

Two weeks ago our kind readers were asked to help studio assistant Buttonwillow fulfill her lifelong dream of becoming an artist's model. She posed for a new painting to be called "Still Life with Bicolor Cat", and we showed 3 different poses and asked which one should be used for the painting.

As of this writing, pose B is in the lead with 23 votes, pose C is the second favorite with 9 votes, and pose A has but ONE measly vote. Buttonwillow asks: "What gives?"

Here is Pose A, which Buttonwillow describes as the most intensely difficult of the three. "I had to actually sit still for at least THREE whole seconds. I was going for the stoic, pensive look, with just a touch of mystery--leading the viewer to wonder: 'Is she looking at a bird through a window? Is she contemplating her inner vulture? Is she waiting for the food dish to be filled?'"

It's not too late to vote and to give Pose A the attention it deserves! Just visit this link where you will find all three poses, and make your preference known in the Comments section:

Buttonwillow's Dream Job...and a Giveaway!!

Voting ends tomorrow, May 28, at 7 p.m. PST, and I will paint the version with the most votes, showing the step-by-step process in future blog posts.

And here's the good part: Each person who votes will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of three prizes featuring my brand new Crazy Cat Lady design: A blank book/journal ($10.99 value); a magnet ($4.49 value); or a ceramic tile coaster ($6.50 value). Three names will be d
rawn at random on May 28 and items can be shipped to anywhere in the world.

That's right, you have three chances to win! So what are you waiting for? Please help make Buttonwillow's dream come true!

Thanks for visiting!
