"Rest for the Weary" oil on hardboard 6x6"

Guess what; in the painting the chair arm isn't pink.  My camera skills are outlandish.  Oh well.  You get the general feel.  This is the same guy that wears a life jacket.  He is so much like my Mr. Magoo that painting him has a special charm for me.

"More Ally More" oil on board 6x6"

This was a pretty fast study.  I feel like this cat should be moving in with my brood.  Seems like she lives here already.

"Aqua Cat" oil on board 6x6"

This is Zane, Ally's partner in crime.  He's actually wearing a life jacket.  His owners take him on their boat.  Wouldn't you love to know what he's thinking?

"Ally Cat" revisited

This is the same painting just with a few additions.  Her tag is for real.  Purple crown with rhinestones.  The owner hasn't decided on which painting she wants.  With all this attitude I wouldn't have to think twice.  I think I have painted her 4 times at this juncture.  She's so beautiful that it is never boring.  Her buddy Zane is coming up soon.  I painted him in his life jacket.  No! really.

"Marching On" oil on hardboard 8x10" $220

I have this new fascination with feet, shoes, shadows and all that goes with them.  My husband and I just spent a bit of time in some airports.  The things folks had on their feet provided endless entertainment.  I think this you'll be seeing more of this to come.

"Ally Cat" oil on hardboard 6x6"

Well! I didn't think I would ever find a cat as beautiful to paint as my own orange Ollie but Ally is certainly giving him a run for his money.  This is the first of two paintings I've already completed and I KNOW there will be more.
