Puurrrr.... This is "Lily." Quite the reader! Lily was nominated by the daughter of her owner, to potentially be one of the 2014 Whidbey Animal Star Calendar paintings. I painted her 11x14 on a deep canvas panel. I just love her expression, her eyes, the reflected light off the book she's reading onto her ruff. Voting will take place at Studio 106's First Saturday Artwalk in September, 9/7/13. I'm having a blast ... it's a joyful process to take these delightful photos and turn them into paintings of love and light.
