6 x 6 oil on canvas SOLD
Finally feeling better and back to painting. Ahhhh.
When you paint nearly everyday, skipping almost
a week can seem like an eternity.
If there's one thing harder to paint than black dogs,
it's white cats! Jacy was a delight, however. He has the
most beautiful, clear, sky blue eyes. He lives with Oddball
and Lucky (the next portrait to come in this series.)
Here is a little background on Jacy provided by his owner:
"Jacy was the head honcho and was here before Lucky and
Oddball. He is bigger in stature and longer legged than either
of them and although he doesn't fight with them he is top cat/dog.
He is the most affectionate cat we've ever had and everyone
comments on his quiet sociability. He was an indoor cat until he
learned to use the doggie door. His favorite thing is being the
driveway sentry at night. He sits on the driveway like a statue
and watches for an hour or two and then he comes in for the night.
His biggest fan is Lucky who is so happy when Jacy sleeps near him.
We got him from a rescue group and we think he's a Turkish Van or
