I paint with acrylics on watercolor paper; using the process of layering the paint and scratching back to reveal unique colors and textures in my paintings.

Tiggy - a painting in honor of our beloved cat, he and his sister came into our family when they were tiny kittens. We got them from our neighbor for our daughter who was three at the time. They grew up together. Tiggy was a wonderful cat, loving and patient. Through the years he was patient and present with all the kids who came in and out and he loved our daughter. He also loved being outdoors, spending hours outside laying in the front yard. Neighbors walking by would stop to pet him. He was majestic and kind to all, everyone knew him. At thirteen, he became ill, and we knew it was near the end, but he still loved laying outside. He died a week after our girl graduated from high school. It seemed like he was waiting for that; he actually went up into her bedroom and passed away. I think of Tiggy as such an evolved being and know he's somewhere up in heaven where all our beloved pets go. That's why I did the fanciful background as if he is in a heavenly sphere.
