Following is the poem that I wrote to go with it. It was originally for a show on addiction and recovery, which isn't going to happen this year, unfortunately.
The "model" is actually a very sweet kitty friend of my friend Jen.
Some of my painting friends have inspired me to set up a blog where people can view some paintings, give their comments, and see what I'm working on. It's still in the infant stage, so if you have some suggestions, things you'd like to see, or demo you'd like to have me do, let me know. Following the example of others, this comes with a disclaimer...these are copyrighted paintings, and are protected under copyright laws. They are for viewing/appreciating/critiquing...not for pirating.
