For my old man

Last week my wonderful cat Monty died. I still find it hard to deal with the fact he's gone, but painting this helped. He was special to me - my old man - and truly a beautiful cat. He had a good long life though for which I am extremely grateful.

Inspired by the amazing Marta Nael. I have been getting back into painting more over the summer; learning lots and having fun. I'm always slightly too tentative though so attempting an Impressionistic style like Marta's encouraged me to be a bit more free and expressive. It's kind of appropriate :)
