I painted "Survivor" for the Paws & Claws at Flintrock Falls fundraiser for The Friends of Mrs. P's nonprofit organization ( They raise money, pet food and other services for pets who's owners need a little help to take care of them and to the loveable neighborhood "pet" who prefer living in the wild, so to speak.

"Survivor" was a big ol' Tom cat that would come through the neighborhood where we used to live. You could tell he had had his share of cat fights but there was a gentleness in his eyes. Maybe he was once someone's pet and got lost, then mistreated and just couldn't bring himself to trust humans again.

I will be donating this painting to the Lakeway Library fundraiser on October 2. I did most of it with pallet knife and had fun doing it. A little departure from my pastel work.
