Dave in Pink

“What we hope ever to do with ease we may learn first to do with diligence.”
– Samuel Johnson

Dave in Pink

5″ x 7″ Watercolor

I spent a lot of time on my big 2′ x 4′ painting, but I did manage a few little bitty paintings.  This one is Dave, the cat of OldRockChick at WetCanvas.  She said he may not approve of being pink.  He’s quite a manly man!  hehehe

About Samuel Johnson

Samuel Johnson, the sharp-witted British essayist, wrote the first English language dictionary; his definitions still form the backbone of current dictionaries. He was born in Staffordshire in 1709. Johnson married a widow 20 years his senior and lived in poverty before achieving success with his essays when he was in his forties. Later in life, he befriended the young James Boswell, whose Life of Johnson became the quintessential English biography. Johnson died in 1784.

    A pink cat, my girls would love it! Dave must be proud, but I know how he feels, one day I have the redneck in me and wear camo, torn jeans and cap, other days a pink shirt and khakis.

    He should be very proud of your pink version of himself. Meow!

    He looks very soft, to me. Love those yellow-green eyes! Oh, and I see him on my screen as more purple so I guess he is whatever color comes across the web. 🙂 I can hardly wait to see your 2’x4′. I say that is quite an accomplishment.

      Thanks, Leslie. He really is more purple than pink. 🙂

      I am having a great time with the big painting. The hardest part is waiting for a color to dry so I can move on. So it’s a paint, wait, paint, wait game. I was going to take some little section photos to share, but I forgot to do it during the day. I’m hardly ever home during daylight, except on weekends. I don’t want to photograph the whole painting until it is done, when I’ll take a picture of it hanging on a wall. How exciting!
