For those of you who know Marianne, you know she lost her beloved cat recently, Sjimmie.
He was one of those special cats that comes along once in a lifetime.
He was buried by her back fence under the two towers which were known to be his "kingdom."
I wanted to capture the essence of him, his spirit world by the fence with Buddha for protection.
I'm sure you recognize the photo of him which has been on her blog for a long time now. I always knew I wanted to paint that, but never did I know it would be to remember him this way.
I just got off the phone with Marianne who couldn't thank me enough for this small gift.
You're very welcome my dear friend.
Happy (belated) birthday!
