Lexi Girl

Black cats are PAWSOME! So says Cole and Marmalade in this cute little 1.47 minute video:

Our black kitty Lexi is the inspiration behind this painting. Painted on 140 lb, 9 x 12 in watercolor board in a very loose style: Meet Lexi below:

As you can see, she loves the Christmas tree.

Progress photos from pencil sketch to finished painting:

My husband and I were looking for a gray female kitten when instead, we came across a black stray kitten being cared for by Homeward Bound here in Morgantown WV. https://www.homewardboundwv.org/ David spotted her in a cage, and when he reached for her she looked at him with such a sweet, trusting look that I knew she was the one. My exact words were, “I think that one is going home with us.” And indeed she did go home with us, but not for a few days. It was right before Halloween and they do not allow adoptions of black cats during the month of October. But, once our references checked out, Lexi came home to live with us on September 25th, 2016. She is such a sweet girl and we are lucky to have her.

Hope you enjoyed meeting Lexi, our lucky black cat.

Helen
