Paint a Tabby Cat

March 16, 2017 by Rachel

Winter is cold and seemingly endless here in New England. When we first moved into our house, decades ago, we only had 6 inches of sand and rocks for a yard. Within a few months that sand was several feet under snow, and I turned to the seed and nursery catalogues that started arriving in our mailbox. Just planning what I would plant in the yard made those last winter months easier to deal with. Our yard looks less like a moonscape these days, but I still love finding those catalogues in our mailbox.

Painting this orange tabby sunning herself next to the potted plants was another way I helped myself get through this winter. It may be sleeting and snowing outside, but as I painted I could almost feel the warmth radiating up from those sun-warmed bricks. Here is my drawing of a cat peeking out from behind the potted plants that you can print out for your personal use only.
