Fangs a lot!

Other captions could be "Happy birthday! You're not long in the tooth. Just toothsome!"
Or "I got lots to tell you......... Do you speak cat?"
This was given to Mr. R on this b day. Well a little late for his b day, but the intent was there.
And yes, the whiskers are missing.

Brindle Boy

Do you like paint when it's all thick and gloppy and almost three dimensional in its layering? Then most likely you'll like this and the accompanying girl pibble picture. Lots of layering, and lots of fun.
Brindles, like tabbies, calicos and torties, have so many paint colors that it takes me twice as long to paint. Like with all my paintings, I start with the undercolor, the color that I see under the colors and then pile other colrs on top of that. This has a maroon, almost purple undercover.
