They are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."
This is a watercolor painting of a friend's white cat, Zelda.
She is a very aloof cat with a bit of an "attitude" . Last year on Easter day, we caught her on the cool green grass and my husband took her photo....I put that photo together with the photo of their potted Easter lilies and composed "Zelda the Miracle Cat"...a joke because in one part of her nine life adventures, she had lost most of her tail...in the painting I made it a bit longer...which you can't even see here because the scanner cut it off again!
Yesterday, having an unexpected day off, I went with Lizzzzzy to visit our long time friend, Sally....the cat's owner. [ We have all known each other since we lived in Little Rock. Sally now lives in a town about 30 minutes away, and has a wonderful old 2 story farm house (now with-in the town limits). Her husband is a professional gardern/landscape artist and a deacon in the Episcopal church. Sally has the worlds greenest thumb and is a science and math teacher. Going to their home is very much a retreat for me....the gardens and the fellowship.]
I took her the framed painting of her cat...and there was the perfect place just waiting for it...even a bare nail to hang it on!
