Mona's Mister

"Mona's Mister," 2007

My friend Mona dotes on Mister. When I gave her the portrait, she said, "Oh Woods, this is the best present ever."

She moved to Spokane this summer. She still has friends from high school there.

I wish her well.

Fatsy Maxey

"Fatsy Maxey," 2007

This is the second portrait that I just finished of Kris' cats.

I think I am getting better at painting black and white tuxedo cats.

Shy, Shy Simon

"Shy, Shy Simon," 2007

This is one of two portraits done for Kris Tsujikawa. I promised her one of Maxey last year and I planned to do one of Binky this year.

Kris has three lovely tuxedo cats. She sends digital images of them that she shoots with her Nikon D-40. Yes, I am jealous of that camera, especially since my little digital Nikon was stolen when my house was broken into last month. Or was it the month before? Time flies by.

I thought that the photograph that she sent that is this painting's source was Binky. But when I gave her this portrait, it was obviously of Simon.
