Rescue me...

Heaven's Gate

This is my old cat Baby.  She is looking out of the entrapment of her yard toward the great beyond.  Actually, she could easily squeeze through the fence.  But if the fence posts were closer we wouldn't see her beautiful sad face.  I'm posting my portrait for the www.illustrationfriday.com theme rescue.  And declaring this week an official cat week. 

Do you know that the Walker Art Center is hosting the 2nd annual Internet Cat Video Festival this week?  Well, it is.  And over 10,000 furry friends showed up last year.  So many that they had to move it to the State Fair grounds this year.  And I've already got my tickets.  Meow. And one of my cats is already at the State Fair.  My painting Cat on a Blue Stairway is on display at Heritage Square.  Are you curious?  Well, go there and see if you can sniff it out.

Baby looks so sweet. Her face just tugs at my heart.

I would love to go to such an event as an Internet Cat Video Festival! And I think it's great that one of your paintings is on display. Thank you for being a good friend to the furry ones. :-)

Love the "portrait of Baby" Sharon.....I like the way she's "framed" by the fence.

as you know I won that painting (cat on the blue stairway) on your blog and it proudly hangs in my office.
I know two bloggers who will be at the film festival. Have fun!
