Sitting on Artist Opportunities

The following was recently overheard by ArtSake on the banks of the river Charles: “Ok buddy, I’ll let you sit on me. I’m a big fan of modern art and pencil sketching so I’d be delighted to lend my scales to sit on. By the way, have you ever read Alligator’s All Around by Maurice Sendak? It’s my favorite book. I posed for him when I was just a baby gator.”
