Gasp! It's a cat! Summer is here, the kids are finishing school and trying new pursuits, and I thought it might be fun to try something new as well. Hence, the change from my usual canine subject matter, as well as the new medium. watercolor and pen.
This portrait is of a beautiful cat named Betty, currently residing at the Francisvale Home for Smaller Animals in Radnor, PA. According to the folks at Francisvale, Betty is seven years old, and although she's been passed from home to home over the years, is still a gentle soul who loves to be picked up and snuggled.
Francisvale is having a Cat Open House this Saturday, June 12, from noon to 3 p.m. Adoption fees will be waived on this special day in favor of a donation! If you have been thinking of adding a cat to the family, please consider adopting Betty or one of the other lovely cats at Francisvale.
