"Marmelade in the Morning." acrylic 16x20
This is a cat that followed my son and I around at Ft. Steele during a field trip in 2011. He was very friendly with my son and was especially interested in the snacks that Darcy was eating. The sun was just coming up over Fischer Peak when I took this cat's photograph. I loved the light. The bright orange marmelade color of the cat is complimented by the green grass. I have never personnally owned a cat, but I must say that I was growing fond of this guy. It makes me happy to see this painting and remember the fun time that we had together at Fort Steele. I finally called this painting "Marmelade in the Morning" because I am fond of all three; the cat, marmelade, and the morning sun.
