I have a soft spot for this painting. It’s of the nicer cat, Scout, and she’s gifted at making herself sleek and graceful and paintable. Look how she curled her tail around her ankle here. Oh she’s good. Sweet, loving, fun. She’d be pretty much perfect if she didn’t take such delight in shredding couches.
I painted this at the very beginning of the summer, and stayed up late doing it. One of those magical painting nights. I was so scared wondering how to paint the shine on her.
It’s been hanging out at Lalli Loves It in Horseshoe Bay and today it went to live with a nice local couple who apparently had a very similar cat, called Alec I think. Hope I got that right. I just love hearing little snippets like that. They’re my babies, you know. So glad this one found a good home.
