"Catty Cat" oil on hardboard 6x6" $99 SOLD
This little monkey belongs to me. She is one of 14 strays we have adopted over the last 20 years. No! we don't have them all at once. The most we've housed at any one time was 9. Right now we have 5 plus a VERY stray stray. Life in the country. Today the back door got left open and this one took herself for a walk with her house mate. I was so happy when I managed to wrangle them up! it never occurred to me that while they were getting OUT the stray was getting IN. Yikes! Circus act.
I'm a painter living in Enumclaw, Washington. It's a small town in the foothills below Mt. Rainier. My sculptor husband and I share 3 studios, a foundry,6 cats, a one-of-a-kind, custom, cast bronze door and cabinet hardware company and 5 beautiful acres of land on which we host a July outdoor sculpture show. "A Painting a Day" seemed a little over the top. Just up my alley. Don't look for any consistency in subject matter. The one sure thing? color!
Paintings can be purchased on Ebay of directly from our studio.
