In Memorium


Here is an unfinished piece from the early 90s. It is of my Cat Owen. Owen died today. He was sixteen. He was named after the character Owen Meany from the John Irving novel " A prayer for Owen Meany " He was not much like Irving's character, but he was a Meany for sure. He will be missed.
approx 30x30

Sorry for your loss. It's a very nice painting and I am sure he was a Meany only in the best of ways !

Chuck - so sorry to hear about Meany. My boy cat was very nearly 16 when he died. They leave a big hole........

He was my first pet.
My other Cat, Edie keeps looking for him. A loss for her as well.

Dear Chuck,
We're so sorry to hear this and sorry to be late with our condolences (haven't been looking at blogs much).
We know Owen lived a wonderful life with you and was much loved.
We still have that photo you sent us...we'll miss him too. :(
Give Edie a hug for us.
Judy and "Sacha"

Thanks Judy
Owen was the only cat in the neighborhood who had friends in Holland!
Well There's Edie too, now she gets all the attention ..which she doesn't seem to mind very much at all.
