Our Orange Friend

Tomorrow, August 8, is known at our house as "Chester Cheetah" day. It' s the birthday of our beloved, handsome orange tabby, Chester Cheetah, who passed away last summer after a full feline life of 18 years with us.

A few years ago, I woke up one morning and thought today I'm going to paint a large portrait of him. For some reason, it can be challenging to paint your own pet, but I'm so glad I did. I smile every time I see that bright pink nose and golden green eyes.

We miss and love you Chester--Happy Birthday!
