MELLO YELLOW

6x9 oil on canvas

September is all about cats on James Parker's fun blog. There were several photos I wanted to try and paint, but the month has zipped by so fast, I barely got this one in on time. My husband and I have a favorite coffee that we drink called Mello Joy, it is only sold in Louisiana and comes in a bright yellow package. We buy it by the case when we visit family and for the first time in several years, we have run out and have had to substitute another not so adequate brand of coffee. As I painted this fellow, I could not help but think of how much I miss my Mello Joy coffee and I wonder if I might look just like this after that first great sip of Mello Joy! Thank you for visiting and letting me ramble; take care.

What a great idea for a brand mascot! I would buy a case with his face on the box!

I love your story to go along with the wonderful expression on this one's cute face. He does have the sublime look! So cute! Reminds me of my Seamus whenever he is on my lap and getting petted.

There you go again, just charming me to pieces with your wonderful and charismatic animal paintings. they aren't animal, they are portraits of little earthly souls. So much life, so joyful.
