After seeing this video you cannot doubt the ability to manifest dreams... or paintings! Todd the Dog is a fictitious character featured in many paintings as Edmund's loyal companion between 2009 and 2014. Otto, a real dog, was born in Valencia in 2016. He suddenly materialised as a temporary lodger at age six months. He is still with us, thankfully. Paintings of Todd the Dog were premonitions of Otto's colouring, short legs, long body, big snout, wild flapping ears and irresistable brown eyes, not to mention the unexpected way each dog found its new home. (Todd was lurking in Edmund's recycle bin.) Be very careful about what you paint!

Yesterday on our walk we enjoyed glimpses of lambs, kids, geese and cheeky chickens, some of which were captured on the iPhone (end of this short clip). The main star in this film is Pinky the chicken, 80x80cm painted on wood, 2019.

Picked up a massive supply of citrus fruit this morning and a few went into salt preserves. Weather is beautiful, fit for Three Kings. Four days of rain and tighter Covid restrictions are coming so we took a long walk in the orange groves for a vitamin D top-up.

Canadian painter Wilda Goyetche uses the artistic name Wildago to sign her work whilst balancing the needs of a highly demanding, four-legged, sausage-shaped muse named Otto.
