My name is Lynda Smids and over there, in the kitchen, trying to convince me it's already dinner time (two hours too early), is Mr. Ed (Eddie H. for friends). We live a pretty amazing life together in beautiful Amsterdam. We both love food, birds and other animals (alive for me, different kinds for Ed), painting and drawing (I do the job, Ed just looks cute), sleeping (Ed sleeps, I'm busy) and watching series on our fantastic couch (I watch, Ed sleeps). We love our balcony (I love gardening and Ed loves watching the birds and other cats and tries to eat all the plants, although he loves his cat grass the best).
Besides painting my favorite model,I also love to paint landscapes, portraits, birds, anything really (as long as it moves me in one way or another). I paint on canvas, paper, wood, mugs,espresso cups, fans,cake saucers, windows, doors, anything really. On commission or not. But this book had to be about Ed. Because he's one of the best things that has ever happened to me!:) He is already a little famous in The Netherlands, as (of course) I also paint him on mugs, cake saucers, fans, etc. which are sold (the fans for a good cause).
So, IN WE GO, Mr. Ed and I. Once I started drawing and painting I couldn't stop anymore, idea after idea popped into my head- I have to tell everything about Ed's fabulous life and although he sleeps A LOT (he is sleeping now, while I'm working on his book;)) , there is also a lot to tell- so I guess there's gonna be a sequel. And probably another one. I started working on thin paper, while I was waiting for my Sketchbook to arrive, so I could just paste the drawings into the book, after arrival. And when the book got here a few days ago, the fun really started! I already decided there's gonna be a lot more than only pasting, I'm curious about the final result myself!
Enough talking, there's work to be done. While others (...) are sleeping after their tummy's been filled...
