"Merchant" is for my good friend and fan, Ruby. She sent me many pictures of her three cats, among which I chose this classic pose of the beautiful cat. He is a 13-years-old brown tabby, adopted from a shelter. Merchant is a great companion and loves to sit in your lap when you sit down. That's how he won Ruby's husband (a dog person) over by running to jump on his lap!
If you send me your pictures to email@example.com, I may make paintings out of them. How fun is that! At the end of September, I will do a drawing and one lucky person wins a free painting. You can buy the painting anytime, but there is no obligation. Thanks!
By the way, today is the Day 2 of Leslie Saeta's 30 in 30 Challenge. Two down and 28 to go!
