What a day!


This black cat is another painting that my neighbor MO is buying for a friend of hers. The cat was based on one of our cats, Pur - she's a buff colored cat but the lady that is going to get the painting has a black cat so I improvised. I'm happy with the way it turned out, though I do see places I could improve but it needs to go to it's new home.

Drove home today in a lightening storm. At times it was raining so hard I could hardly see the front of my car and with lightening striking all around it was a very exciting ride home. It reminded me of a day when my daughter and I were coming home from Boise. It had been raining really hard so there was a lot of water on the road. We were passing a big semi, a mist was flying up from the trucks wheels, the sun had come out and just as we got along side the truck a rainbow developed all around us. We were driving in the rainbow for almost 5 minutes, the colors surrounding us and I keep my speed even so that we could stay in the magic. It was so awesome and magical and something that the two of us always smile about whenever we see a rainbow.

I followed your link left on Collagecats and have to tell you that your paintings are gorgeous. I love the vibrant colours and as an owner of two black cats, think this one is particularly great.
