Balancing Act. oil, 8x24

I love painting reflective surfaces. I found this wonderful silver bowl at the Goodwill. I have included two images so you can see the full canvas and a close-up to show more detail.

Best of Show, OSA March 2011 Show - Second Place, North Clackamas Arts Guild, September 2011 - Perusing the Morning News, oil, 24x18

My husband, Jim and his cat Esper read the paper together every morning in their favorite chair. This is their ritual. Esper was diagnosed with cancer, Fibrosarcoma, July 2010. Jim asked me to paint a picture of her to remember her by.

It is now March 2011 and Esper is still with us. She is a strong cat, however, her tumor (located on her shoulder) is now twice the size of her head. She is playful, has a great appetite, jumps up on the counter, so, she is not in pain. We are enjoying every moment with her.

RIP Esper, March 18, 2011. Tears.
