Painting at Meyer's Barn with Ashley the Cat
One Wednesday afternoon recently, I was painting en plein air at the country home of some friends near where we live. They have some wonderful animals and we were first greeted by the 3 dogs, a golden lab and 2 boxers. After I was set up and beginning to paint, I was greeted by Ashley the cat, who took a liking to me - so much that I was unable to paint for a while - she was persistent in making sure that she had my attention. What an affectionate, sweet and gentle cat! Painting en plein air has many advantages and perks - Ashley was definitely one of them. The barn painting, which I did eventually get painted, is 9" x 12" and is painted on a canvas panel. It is always going to be a reminder of a lovely afternoon with a wonderful furry friend!
