Oh, how I love October! We haven’t had to use the air conditioner for a while, and instead can leave the windows open. There is a snap of chill in the air, pumpkins and Halloween decorations begin to appear, and occasionally you can even catch the scent of a fire somewhere in the neighborhood. Autumn (when it finally arrives in Charleston) is my very favorite time of year.
The cat above is a bit serious-looking, but he is a Halloween cat, and they can be a bit grim. I painted this in acrylic on a 9″x 12″ canvas pad. I’m trying to loosen up in my animal portraiture. You can see more paintings of animals at my website, WWW.NANCYLEMON.COM
