Drabbles of Art - Two Girls Dressing a Kitten by Candlelight by Joseph Wright

“Are you sure?”
“Of course I’m sure,” Lucy answered. Her fingers traced around the markings on the table. “I found this circle and the markings in one of grandma’s old books. As long as he stays within the circle we can do whatever we want and I want to dress this demon like a doll.”
