There is a wild black tom cat that has roamed our area for years. He's very wary--when he has passed through our yard I've never been able to get closer than about 30 feet away. I did a larger painting of him several years ago, which I'll post when/if I can locate the darn file. Every now and again I see him out in the fields, hunting for mice under the snow. Always alone, sleek and beautiful, it's obvious he knows very well how to take care of himself. A true survivor.

WE'RE DOWNSIZING!
*Please note:  I have modified the painting size and price since first posting this.  I thought the painting size was 8" x 9"--turns out it's 7" x 8", so price goes down accordingly.  The lesson I hope I've learned:  don't rely on faulty memory...double-check!

At first sight, I sensed a calm balance in this piece. Then I noticed the cat, and everything became charged by his very big little presence. Wonderful!

I have a black barn cat like this one, and a red barn....I felt like I was looking at my own backyard! Very Wyeth feel to this, love it!
