Last week I said goodbye to Maggie, my cat for 16 years. She was a great cat - beautiful, sweet, and affectionate, yet full of personality - she was always surprising me. On cold days she was usually on my lap sucking up the warmth, and she loved when I sat down to work on a studio painting as that meant a long lap nap for her. I will miss her.
I did these 3 small 6x6 paintings earlier this summer. I had been searching for something to paint when I realized the perfect model was right in front of me.
