In His Boat

"Oliver - In His Boat"
10" x 8"
(watercolor on aquabord)

I hope you all are having wonderful holidays this season.  We celebrated Christmas on Friday with family and had a great day.  This painting is one of my gifts to my husband, Dan.  It's of our kitty, Oliver, who passed away a few months ago.  Oliver was Dan's since before he and I met.  Dan got him when Ollie was about a year old and was 18 when we had to put him down.  But he is buried outside my studio, beside a new arbor we put in over the summer, so he is nearby.  Oliver slept in a red poodle bed that I called his "boat."  Sometimes all I could see was his head sticking out.

He was a funny little guy.  We miss him.

But let's not end this post on a sad note . . .  I'm excited for the new year and am trying to organize and plan for lots of new goals in 2016.  It's like a new, clean slate.  I also have some paintings that I recently finished before the holidays, but haven't had time to post.  So I will soon be sharing those with you.  

Wishing you all a blessed and very Happy New Year!
