SOLD I was sitting here in the gardens and the cat there came up and laid down. I thought I would see if I could paint her into the painting and she stayed there till I finished. They told me she is expecting, they are trying to catch her. I got finished just in time, it got real dark and started to rain. Its 8 x 10 oil, on hardwood plywood.
