This is Thomas my cat.
In this painting I wanted a history of myself in some way and came up with this idea. The chair is one of several that I had built from the left over wood that we had cleared for the building of our home. The hoe represents my love of gardening and I have never been without a cat to feed and take care as far as my memory goes. I love animals. They are all sitting on our front porch which I helped shingle.
Yes, that pretty well sums me up.
