Well, Benny's name doesn't have a story. He just looks like a Benny. Funny about painting...you get an itch to paint something specific, and you do it (or try it). Sometimes you don't know why. In this case, upon seeing Benny, my husband casually said "What's up with the wild animals lately?". Hmmm... I didn't have an answer to that, but maybe tomorrow I'll paint a car or a plum. That's the beauty of it! And the fun of it. I never take for granted the gift of being able to lose myself in something I love so much. I am blessed.
