Is white the absence of light? white cat in light…

My mother adopted a cat several years ago and named her ZsaZsa. ZsaZsa was a cat full of herself, a great open hearted friendly cat. She recently died at the grand age of 16, so this painting is a memorial to her and also a study in painting white.

Aggie in a sun beam

Aggie is a grey cat with silvery tips on all of her hairs. She can look so plain or exquisite. A little sun makes her glow. Here she is, delicately washing. This painting measures 6″ x 8″ and the paper was hand made in an Indian village. The painting is for sale for $60 all proceeds of the sales of my paintings go towards non profits.

Bike Glow

For one of my recent assignments, I was to study glow. After painting dozens of flowers, it seemed like I needed a break, so I painted a randonneur instead. Who else would be peacefully beginning a bike ride at sunset. Painting measures 8″ x 8″ and is for sale, all proceeds go to wildlife conservation.

The view from the food dish

I have really been enjoying the quality of the photos that has been coming from the Il Gattaro di Aleppo pages on facebook. Some of them really caught my eye, endearing, but not traditional views of cats. I decided to make a series of them. They will be featured for sale at a later date. Maxi is one of the featured cats. Maybe someone else knows who the others are.

The Ginger gang

Il Gattaro di Aleppo is one of my favorite charities. This man has shown so much courage and diligence, that I just can’t seem to do enough for him. I’ve been donating paintings to his cause for about a year now. I get to do paintings that challenge and inspire me, and I also get to raise money for this man, who helps people’s abandoned pets, and the children of the people that still live there, in Syria. and for some reason, he has a lot of orange tabbies!
