Tom  14 x 11 pastel 

I delivered this wedding gift a few days ago, so it's safe to post. Tom was quite fun to paint and I decided he needed the periwinkle border at the last minute.

Funky Chicken IV

 Funky Chicken IV  12 x 9 pastel on gatorboard

I needed a fast, loose chicken today. Nothing else was working. For some reason, chickens
are very forgiving.

Another Nap

Another Nap     8 x 10 pastel on UART    $400

It's rainy here in NY. Instead of taking a nap I decided to try another painting of my cat. 

Someone once told me if you want to have a good life, live like a cat: never underestimate the value of a good nap, eat when you are hungry, play when you feel like it, live like it's your ninth life. 

Sage advice.

Naptime 9 x 12 pastel   SOLD

I did this at the tail end of a 4 day plein aire workshop with Liz Haywood Sullivan in Litchfield, CT.  We had some time left and I was tired of landscapes and had a photo of my cat, Moon.

This will go to a dear friend so I will get to visit it!
