This painting won Best of Show in 2012 11th Annual Wildlife Juried Art Competition hosted by Irving Art Association! I received this great news a few days ago. It sure did make my day!!

I have been so busy with my work since June. I can't believe its already October. I wish I had some time to paint, but probably will have to wait until February next year.

New Original Hunter ACEO

My Hunter
Size: 2.5 x 3.5 inches
Medium: Acrylic

I made a little altar for Hunter. This ACEO painting sits there with his commissioned feilties that was created by very talented artist Robin Andreae.

Since his passing, I have been speaking with animal communicators and reading books by Penelope Smith, a famous animal communicator, to learn to talk to my cats. The two animal communicators I spoke with told me that Hunter is coming back in a new body within this year!! That would make me so happy. I really hope so!

Saddest Day of My Life

My precious Hunter passed away late night on May 12. It was day 31 since his Convenia shot. He had a bad reaction to this antibiotic and suffered terribly for one full month. It was not even necessary for him to get the shot because amoxicillin was working fine with his chronic cough. His doctor recommended Convenia without telling us anything about its possible side effects and danger.

According to Pfizer, a Convenia shot is effective for 14 days, but remains in the system for 65 days. Curt and I looked after him day and night, feeding and medicating him 5 times a day while researching the Internet which revealed that 5 to 6% of the cats, especially old cats, have a bad reaction to Convenia some of which are fatal. We needed to keep him going for 65 days. In spite of numerous visits to his vets, stay at an emergency hospital, multiple ultrasound, X-rays, blood tests, and placement of feeding tube, he could not make it. I'M SO SORRY HUNTER!

Rest in peace now. I will always love you forever.

Best in Show

Title: Soulmates
Size: 3 x 3 inches
Medium: Acrylic
Support: Multimedia artboard

I am very happy to report that this little painting has won Best in Show at 2012 Spanish Moss Miniature Art Show hosted by Alabama Miniature Art Society.
The models are Benny (right) and Temmy (left). These two cats were literally soulmates. Temmy followed Benny everywhere. This award is especially precious to me because Benny passed on a little over a year ago at the age of 19. Temmy was very lonely for a while but she now seems to be getting closer to some of our other cats.

This is my still life painting for the upcoming San Mateo County show in June. I mostly paint animals, but I enjoyed painting this Fuji apple. Hopefully this will win something at the show.
