Pepper Two


Pepper Two

I painted this from one of the earlier photos I took of the kittens - especially since the strawberry plant seen here is now totally destroyed! LOL

We named her 'Pepper" (still not sure if it IS a 'her') after the first cat I ever owned -- a black, white and gray patterned just like this one - the coloring reminding me of grains of pepper.

We're off today to the opening of "Eye of the Eagle" Gallery and the artist reception there. I have 2 paintings at the show and was asked to bring 2 more ... should be fun!

Have a great Saturday!

Oh what a great set of "reunion" photos. Thanks so much for sharing with us. They are such a gorgeous lot and will provide you with many hours of art inspiration as well as laughter. Their antics are so much fun.
Meowry hugs,

And what a sweet painting. I love how they have to "grow into their heads" at this age! Now mine have gained so much weight as adults that they have outgrown their heads!! Lovely painting and it will be so nice when they are too quickly grown and you have these records of their "childhoods!"
Cute name too!
Hugs,
Lorraine

My first cat as a child was named Pepper ... but was completely black. Really nice photo: it captures the essence of a kitten: curious and ready to pounce ... softly.

I love it! You could do a great line in kitten paintings. People would love them.

Well done on getting some of your work framed and 'out there'. Hope it goes well.

Lin - This is so sweet!!! Boots must be so excited to be back with the babies. Love all the photos of them!

Lovely painting. Love the kitten's expression and the fur. Beautiful foliage of poor strawberry plant as well.

Years ago I had a black male cat named Pepper, which was so fat that everybody kept asking us if 'she' is expecting babies. You had to lay down on floor to be able to see that he was actually not cleaning the floor with his stomach. Nice memories...
