Persian Beauty

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

A beautiful silver Persian cat. I love cats, all sizes, shapes and colors, and although most who have shared my life have been the mixed-breed variety, I find the more exotic breeds fun to paint also. Despite their aristocratic appearance, most Persians are as sweet, loving and playful as other kitties, but oh, that soft, lovely fur! This is listed on eBay and is one of a series of small, collectible canvases that can be hung singly or in a grouping.

I read the most wonderful story on the Net today! It happened in China. A twelve week old Macaque monkey had been abandoned by its mother and taken to an animal hospital where it was nursed back to health, physically at least. But it seemed depressed, restless and bored until it met the white pigeon. The story didn't give details of their meeting, but they became fast friends and the little monkey now has a reason to live. Now they are inseparable.

That says it all, doesn't it? Thank God for sending us friends! And just when we need somebody the most, He sends along the perfect friend!

White Passion

I heard recently that if you pursue your passion you will bump into your purpose, but it you look for purpose without passion you will lose them both. Art is my passion, white horses are a passion, as are black, brown, red and spotted ones. Dogs and cats are my passion, and wildlife. Flowers, seascapes and lighthouses. All that should keep me busy for years and years...

This white horse is in acrylic on wrapped, stretched canvas and is available on eBay this week. Back to one of my favorite subjects in a different medium.

It has been a while since I have posted anything new. Computer and personal problems have limited my painting time for a while, but now I am back on track. We have installed a computer with more power and it seems to be working well so far. I don't like to spend more time on computer than in my studio!
Look for more artwork this week and in the weeks to come. More horses, of different colors, dogs, cats, wildlife.....
