Sleeping Hunter

Size: 8 x 10 inches
Medium: Acrylic
Support: Hardboard

This is our Hunter sleeping on his favorite blanket. Several years ago, I painted him from the same reference photo, so this is another version and I like this one better. Doesn't he look happy?

Older cats sleep a lot, maybe 20 hours or more a day. Hunter is now 14 years old. I'm thankful that he is quite healthy other than his chronic asthma for which he uses his inhaler twice a day with my help.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Two New ACEOs

Title: Tuxedo Cat #3
Size: 2.5 x 3.5 inches (ACEO)
Medium: Acrylic
Support: Multimedia Artboard

This is one of the stray cats that has been showing up in our backyard lately for food and water. We call him Skunky because he has a skunk-like marking. According to our mail carrier, this guy has been fixed by one of our neighbors. We are glad to know that because otherwise we would have unnecessarily taken him to our vet for neutering. (We are thinking about adopting him....)

Title: Raccoon #3
Size: 2.5 x 3.5 inches (ACEO)
Medium: Acrylic
Support: Multimedia Artboard

Bunch of raccoons also show up in our yard at night for the leftover food. This is one of them. He is still young. Isn't he cute?!

The Most Beautiful Piano Music

I love piano music whether classical, new age, or jazz. Last night, I borrowed a CD from Curt (my husband). It turned out to be the most beautiful piano music I have ever heard. Just wanted to share with you. It's called "Sicroff Plays Gurdjieff." His music is an interpretation of spiritual leader Gurdjieff. I'm not familiar with this spiritual group, but the music on this CD is out of this world.

I found this short clip on Youtube; although it's not from this CD, if you watch it, you will know what I mean.
