I painted this oil study from a previous plein air. I might add more to it tomorrow, or I might leave it as a study. To be continued!
Today, however, she warmed up to me. She came out and accepted some pets! I read somewhere that black cats are considered lucky in Japan. I know I feel "lucky" that she modeled for me.
