CAT #30 - Tommy Celebrates

Ta da!

30 cats, yep, did 'em all. Struggled a bit as Life always gets in the way when one sets a lofty goal. But keepin' on keepin' on. (You can tell I'm an old hippie, right?)

So, to be perfectly truthful I couldn't have done it with you, yes YOU. The encouragement and sweet comments I got were really what spurred me on when the going got tough. So thank you a million.

Now for those of you who have asked if I plan on selling these paintings, well, yes. Now that I completed the series I, first, will be exhibiting them at Harvey Mendelson's gallery ( in Santa Rosa in March. Dates tbd.

And Harvey, a brilliant photographer AND printer will be making kittycat prints. And so there will be prints available, too, so if you have a favorite and the original gets sold you will still have a chance for a high quality print. I will post on sizes and prices of originals and prints as soon as I know.

Meanwhile, that's all I know at the moment, but I am soooo excited to have this series completed. And on to the preparations for exhibiting them.

Thanks again for following along. xoxoxoxoxo

And now, for #30 - meet Tommy. Yep, that's his name! He is whooping it up that the series is done. He's my little Valentine. And he can be yours, too.  ; )
