Back to my brushes... actually one brush, a very cheap bristle flat. I really do need better brushes. I used the palette knife to scrape out the whiskers. I like this little painting. Every time I paint a cat, I wish I had 10 more in a row to do.
Tomorrow is my 53rd birthday and a new artist, Ilze, will be at my gallery so I can go visit other art galleries and museums all day. Karen and I are going to the McNay and the San Antonio Museum of Art and the Greenhouse Gallery. Heaven, right? We'll have dinner with family at Texas Roadhouse (a peanut-shells-on-the-floor, noisy, steaks-and-baked-potatoes sort of place) and then head home for a piece of the chocolate Kahlua cake Karen's making today.
Sunday I'm having a party online with you! And we don't even have to wear silly hats. Well, you can if you want to... who's to know?
