Do Not Disturb

"Do Not Disturb" is a new kitty painting, 11 x 14 on wrap around canvas, that I just completed last week. My son Matthew lives in Monterey, Ca. where he works as an assistant golf pro for the First T Foundation while completing his internship for the PGA, and "Jasper the kitty" lives next door to him. Matthew has always been allergic to cats, but for some reason Jasper does not bother him. Jasper visits Matthew often and he even finds him sleeping in his bed. He comes to the back door and meows until Matthew lets him in. Then Matthew says he runs around the house purring and playing and when he tires he finds him fast asleep in the strangest places. Yesterday he found him sleeping in the kitchen cabinet, he had torn open a package of napkins and made a mess of them then used them for his bed. The photo reference for this painting was taken by Matthew with his cell phone. It was so beautiful when he sent it to me that I had to paint a painting. Matthew and his girlfriend Taylor were here this past week visiting. We went to an Angel game, had a barbecue with friends and had some time to visit. It was so nice to have him home, even for just a few days. I will have this painting and many more at my upcoming solo exhibition show at the Riverside Visitors Center. Here is the info.
