Willie and Metroport Humane Society

The photo of this painting came out a little dark; I should really study the photoshop tips that R. Garriott writes about on his blog, Daily Paintings plus Photoshop Tips. At any rate, I emailed this painting to Cheryl who is a member of the Metroport Humane Society near my house. She said this cat looks a lot like her new adoptee, Willie, so that is what I'm calling this painting. Willie was at an animal shelter for 34 days, 31 days too long, when Cheryl happened to visit the shelter.

Next week-end I'm going to auction this little painting on this blog and donate the proceeds to the Metroport Humane Society. The auction will begin on Saturday, Feb 21 at 8am and end on Monday Feb 23 at 8pm. Anyone interested in this painting can send me an email with the amount they are willing to buy this painting during that time and the person with the highest bid will win the painting.

If you are interested in participating - please send me at email at with the "Willie" in the Subject Line during the auction period. I will only open emails received during the auction period and with the proper subject line. Please only write a dollar amount you wish to buy the painting for.
If I receive more than one offer of the same dollar amount, the email I receive first will be the one who wins the auction.

This is a 5 x 5 inch, original oil painting on board and will be framed.

Thank you all and thank you, Metroport Humane Society.

Happy Valentines to you Judy! I love your little cat portrait. Very expressive and his eyes have such depth!

I was suprised to see my name in your post, too. Thanks for the 'buzz'-- I hope you find the tips helpful.

Judy: This guy looks like a big, fat, old cat we have too. Except that we were unimaginative and called him Tuxedo -- or Tux for short.
