I am painting in my home studio these days, as my house is being renovated. I opened up my windows, placed my heated palate next to a window, installed fans, and began working. I have company these days, as my black cat loves to sit in one window . To make him more comfortable, I leave a glass of water on one side of the window, and a bowl of grass on the other. When I am tired, or discouraged, I look at him and smile. There is beauty in him, and in a world such as ours.
