Oil on canvas, 8×10. Painted in 2013, commissioned as a gift.
Owner’s reaction: “I couldn’t wait another day to open my birthday gift, so I just opened it. And am nearly bawling like a baby at the beauty of this gift!! A painting of my Geoffrey!!”
Yep. That makes me feel all oogley.

I’d painted Debby’s trio a few years ago, and now it’s time to add the latest addition to the family. I loved painting Gus. He’s so cute, and his bed is pretty groovy. At Debby’s request, I added a second front leg, since the way he was laying made it look like he was a tripod-kitty.

About a year and a half after the loss of our cat Sheba, we decided it might be time to start thinking about adding another cat to the family. That very same day, we found Pippin as a tiny, scared feral stray. That’s the way it is with cats. I’ve never actually chosen a cat. They’ve always picked me.
Pip is wonderful. From his wild and timid beginnings, he’s blossomed into an outgoing and extremely handsome boy. And shiny. Very shiny. Plus, he helps me paint.
Thanks, Pip. I’ll keep that in mind.
