From July 2011, Kelly soaks up the sun on the windowsill, sharing space with my paintbrush vase, her eyes the color of summer leaves. Above is a closeup, but the full version is below.
Kelly didn’t care for the limelight, only the sunlight. Because of that she was the subject of some of the most beautiful photos on this blog. I like this simple composition, so colorful and happy, and what could please me more—art materials, a handpainted vase, sunlight, summer green outdoors, and one of my precious kitties? Does Kelly look 17 years old? She was amazingly beautiful for her age. I came to associate Kelly so much with my studio that this photo is the desktop wallpaper for my studio computer, forever.
Honestly, I’d planned out a watercolor of the photo below as a brand new feline painting, the first in a while, as my August featured artwork, desktop calendar, and other special products, and with all that happened in July it’s the one thing that did not get done. I still have it ready to go, and perhaps the coming months will give me a better opportunity.
