This is the second painting that I did for the Feral Cat Project fundraiser.
My friend Barb bought it, thereby making a donation to the Feral Cat Project. It's a great cause.
On opening night, a couple asked me (I was being cashier) if I knew who did this painting. Out of all the art hanging, they liked this the best and it was already sold! Did I do commissions? Yes, I said, giving them a card. But I never heard from them!
Eddie in Red, 2005
This is Tina's cat, Eddie. He is actually a bit more hefty than he looks in this picture. He's been on a diet so I'm sure he is looking more svelte now.

My friend Barbara scanned a number of my first acrylic paintings for me.
I have had the wonderful support and encouragement of many friends: Barbara, who contributed digital pictures of her and her partner's animals and scanned the results; Tina, who has always been supportive and enthusiastic about my writing and drawing; Rick, my husband (boy, that sounds weird), who tells me I have an artist's eye and has paid for all my art supplies -- and classes -- for the past few years, and many more....
This painting was one of two painting created for a fundraiser for the Feral Cat Project. Alas, it didn't sell and I've since changed it a bit, darkening the blues and adding more color.
I mention Tina above because she contributed the digital photo of her neighbor's cat.
