Shan's Kitty

This little kitty had been abandoned and was rescued by my niece, Shannon, and her guy, Tay.  Without a Mama around, it took awhile for him to get used to using the kitty litter box.   Joe and I cat-sat for them in the beginning and got to help with that experience.  Good thing he's so darn cute!

Artsy Gecko

 6" x 6"

​To continue on my gecko kick, I found this little guy in Bisbee, AZ.  He looked up at me and pleaded with his steely eyes, "Take me home!"  So I did.  He didn't ask me to paint him, but I'm thinking that he probably has enjoyed the extra attention.  Getting the shadow right was a bit of an issue, but once I got him to hold still, it worked out okay.
