I have enjoyed the friendship of pets throughout my life, and so my cats' company has been really comforting during this difficult year. Throughout 2020, I have painted a series of colorful cats with butterflies. In this artistic project, I am celebrating both National Cat day - October 29th - and National Butterfly and Hummingbird Day - October 3rd. I also want to include a page from my children's book, There Once Was a Cat. The illustration combines a cat and butterfly in a garden setting. I am truly thankful for my cats' company and for their inspiration!
