Painting of Harry, 11x14 acrylic

$125 & S&H via Paypal
Not a 'Daily' painting here, but I've had it in my mind for a while to do this.. I just need to work on the fur a bit more, but this is SUCH a classic look from my lovable (to me) kitty, Harry.  His attitude is "We'll do things MY way..." and I love him so much I go for it every time!  He likes to lay on my FACE while I read at night.  (So, yes, here's a little struggle we have - I just need my EYES clear, you know?)  You may not understand our 'relationship', and think it's one-sided, but this kitty does not EAT if I'm away.  Not a bite.  For however long I'm gone.  (Which makes it really hard for me to leave, right?)  Anyway, I have no illusions that this will be in any of the upcoming shows, but it was in me, and I needed to do it!

    I love Harry's picture and I can just see you trying to read.
    When I was a kid my cat( who looked JUST like Harry) would always sit on my homework. Maybe thats what I went to art school!

  7. Harry is lucky to have you as his mom. I have heard that pets find us - choose their mom's. Nice thought. I love my kitty so much! Still love your tulips from yesterday. So vibrant and springy!!

  10. What a sweet kitty. So glad you painted him! Harry just worships you...that's why he can't possibly let you read. It's a cat thing. I have 3 and not a cat in sight until I pull out a book or paper. Suddenly boom! 3 cats right on top of me and the paper.
