Every Winter a rat makes it’s way through our doggie door and always heads straight for my studio. What’s not to love in rat taste? After all, I am known to munch on almonds from time to time in here and once in a while a few fall. And then there are all of the wads of paper….plastic….mixed media fodder. Shelves with paint make great hiding places. But most importantly it is warm. So today instead of being creative, I am gutting my studio. I’ve been meaning to clean it and repaint the walls anyway……I have not caught him yet, but his hours are numbered. Soon there will be no place left to hide….
