I spent the weekend painting watercolor portraits of all the kitties that have been in my life. Cats have been a huge part of my upbringing- my Mother's cat who lived to be 26 was my best friend growing up. She had the highest tolerance for me- letting me drag her around by her tail when I was learning to walk for example- and was very protective. When I grew envious of my friend's new puppy I thought our family could get one as well, but my mother replied, "Emilee, we are cat people..." And so I put the idea out of my head. Don't get me wrong, I love puppies as much as the next dog fanatic- but I guess like my mom said years ago, I am a cat person through and through.
I am thinking about making the paintings into a polka-dot print for new fabric... I will post the finished masterpieces with little bios later this week!
