Friday’s Cat

“Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you sit down quietly, may alight upon you.”
– Nathaniel Hawthorne


4″ x 6″ Watercolor

I hope Mona likes Sandy.  She told me that Sandy is 11 years old and is a little grumpier than vivacious little Pelle.  She has the most piercing blue eyes.  Here is the real Sandy.

I hope you enjoyed my Swedish cat series.   I sure enjoyed painting them.  🙂

About Nathaniel Hawthorne

The novelist Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864), famous for his dense prose and allegorical undertones, is perhaps best known for The Scarlet Letter and The House of the Seven Gables. He was born in Massachusetts, and his New England upbringing permeates his work. Hawthorne achieved fame late in life: his first work, a collection of short stories, was rejected by publishers, but he continued to write even as he worked at the Salem Custom House.

    😀 Sandy is definitely thinking about Pelle in this piece of art. She is sitting in my lap purring and looking at the screen for the moment.

    Beth, I’m so looking forward to welcoming your wonderful art to Sweden. I enjoyed the Swedish-ragdoll week. 😀 What are you planning for next week?

    Your cat series was wonderful, Beth. You also had beautiful subject material. ….and I love the idea of happiness as a butterfly. 🙂
