December 17 - Calico Cat

Today is my husband's 65th birthday, so we had an enjoyable evening out at a nice fish restaurant. I came back to the studio at 7:30 (we eat early) and tried to figure out what to paint. Of course, there was the cat--named "Pesto" because she is such a delightful pest, asking for attention every moment she is awake. This painting has kind of a Mona Lisa smile, if that is possible. I look at her eyes, and see a touch of worry, interest, and focus. When I look at her mouth, I see a slight smile, that appears and disappears, fleeting. Original oil on canvas, gallery wrapped, 6 x 4 inches.
Available on ebay HERE.
