I don't know about you but we're beginning to see lots of spider webs, a few falling leaves and some signs that fall is nearly here in spite of our 90 degree temperatures. It's still a little while before Halloween but I thought a black cat might be appropriate right about now.
This is Leonie and she seemed very appropriate for the season even though she isn't solid black. She was painted in gouache on Arches rough 140# paper.
I'm an artist living in the middle of the boonies but usually enjoying every minute of it. Living in the country means no cable or super fast internet connection and certainly no brick and mortar art stores within easy reach. But it also means that we have an abundance of wildlife right outside our door as well as beautiful landscape vistas just about anywhere we look. That's well worth the lack of modern conveniences to me.
