GIZMO - posing for "On the Lookout"

Oil Pastel 
Collection of Robinson Veterinary Hospital, 
Johnson City, Tennessee

It has been said ... "paint what you love and it will show in every stroke".

I need not tell anyone that our pets play an incredibly important part in our lives and we love them as much as anything that we cherish and treasure.  This work, done a few years ago, is posted today in honor of our 18 year old GIZMO who left us last night to do some big-time hunting of his own, in cat Heaven. If it does not show here, I want to say right out loud that I loved him very much.

I am particularly proud that a few months ago the original artwork that Gizmo posed for "On the Lookout" and five animal portraits in giclee went to Robinson Veterinary Hospital in Johnson City Tennessee where it will be enjoyed by Dr. James Robinson, his staff and all visitors to the hospital.
