My day started so nicely today. Maybe yours did also. In my case, a day dedicated to painting a beautiful, pure-black Persian cat named Amare. Amare is a real love-bug and I had the pleasure of meeting him a few weeks ago. A gentle cat with striking eyes.
I always have talk radio playing while I paint. I was listening to a local program and late in the morning, came the announcement about a shooting in Ottawa, Canada.
I tried not to let the news reporting get me down, stop me from having a productive day in the studio, but it did. I couldn't concentrate, so I had to stop. I'm posting what I did get done. I hope that by Friday, I'll have Amare finished.
