sunny place

Copper was my cat who passed last year.  I always told everyone he was a 'kodak moment'
a minute.  Here he is scratching his back on the concrete in the sun, one of his favorite
things to do.

I painted this on Arches oil paper.  It is paper made for painting with oils.  I got the itch to paint
this way from Duane Keiser's blog.  I love the feel of the paper because there is a little friction
to slow my brush down.  I feel like I'm drawing with paint so to speak.  Give it a try if you
want to.  They sell the paper at Hobby Lobby or other art stores.
