These two lovely seniors were commissioned by my friend and former collegue, Molly, who plans to give this painting as a Christmas present for her friend and handyman, Ray. These are Ray's cats. Rowdy is a bit shy and Oreo is a big thinker.
I could not get Oreo's eyes right for the longest time.
I love the green smudge on Oreo's fur.
I found out this week that I am having an exhibit in Tacoma at the Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital in September/October. My friend Barb told me that the vet had posted at the Artist's Trust web site. Turns out that the Met Vet contact, Julia, is a great photographer.

This is a black and white that I did for the Art for the Children's Market class that I took.
I am still working on the two commissions for Molly Dee and baking for the bake sale to benefit my dog, so even though I haven't posted anything, I've been busy.

"Snowbird," December 2007
This is the second of hopefully three designs for a card exchange. They will also be on sale at the bake sale to benefit my dog.
I think it's a little too dark, but I'm not going to tweak it anymore. I'd make a few changes now that I've haven't looked at it for a couple of days. I wouldn't outline the sign and I'd make the light source more obvious.
