"The Furry Greeter" SOLD

Click to Bid

This little guy is one vocal cat. When I stopped to photograph the flowers in Gretchen’s front yard, he showed up and didn’t stop meowing! And he wanted his head rubbed, so this was pretty much my one shot at getting him on the porch before he headed my direction!

It’s a cold, rainy day here in Kentucky, so I painted sunshine in the form of black-eyed susans and one very furry greeter…..! I liked the repetition of the curves in the grapevine chair on the front porch down to the arched kitty’s back and curly tale.

And I like cats. No point in me trying to justify why I painted this. I like cats. Did I tell you? I like cats. Hopefully Eddie won’t go into a tail spin once again because I have painted “out of the family:…

    I hope Eddie would not be in a tizzy that you painted Ozzie. Love it!! I am very tempted to try to add it to my collection, but after Lucy, Gabriel would not appreciate me adding another cat to my collection, even if it is only a painting and not Ozzie himself! Gorgeous!!!

    Well, the other name for this painting now has to be Ozzie! Tnanks for the rest of the story on him–he is such a loveable little guy. Thanks everyone for the nice comments–as always, it helps to keep me moving forward on the old painting trail!ReplyCancel

    Dreama, I was amazed when I checked my email (we were in Vermont) and saw your painting of Ozzie on our front steps! He belonged to our neighbors (on the right as you face our house) and they left him behind when they move to Cinci. I believed for a long time (what a dummy!) that they would come back for him, but after I heard their other cat disappeared from their new house, I figured Ozzie was lucky, and we’ve been feeding him for the last several years! He doesn’t want to come inside but when it gets colder we may insist; and he is such a sweet and friendly guy. How lovely that you have honored him by painting his portrait!ReplyCancel
