In Memory of Tessy

Acrylic on canvas – reference photo by Lisa Giberti.
When I first saw this picture I knew I wanted to paint it. The lighting is so lovely, and it captures the peaceful atmosphere of Lisa’s farm. And yes, part of her ear is missing – she came to Lisa’s farm that way!


Formerly the neighbor’s cat



Formerly the neighbor's cat


“Formerly the neighbor’s cat” – 11 X 14 acrylic on canvas… This one needed more than just a title, so in honor of national poetry month:

Formerly the neighbor’s cat…

With quiet persistence she would steal away from the noise, from the clutter, to a place of sweet serenity; the rhythmic sound of her contentment complimenting the stillness.

This is a portrait of my cat “Panda”.  She was neglected by her owners – our neighbors – so, little by little, she relocated herself to our farm.  The owners have since moved away and left her behind, so she is officially ours now!
