Black Cat Visions - Halloween

"Cat Visions"
animal art

I have always believed that cats can often see what we
cannot....If you look closely you may see what the cat can see
on Hallows eve.

Here is one of Halloween pieces and it has recently become the
cover of a magazine!! The original oil painting
has sold but sense Halloween is approaching I thought I would
re-post it and let you know that I have large and small high quality
prints available if you are interested. It is $15.oo for a small
and $21.oo for a large.
I think this is definitely one of my favorite Halloween pieces that
I have done.........

Symphony of Sounds - Appletree Hollow painting

"Symphony of Sounds"
oil on gallery wrapped canvas
8"x 10"
An Appletree Hollow painting

May 31, 1862
These are two of the members in the horn section of the
Appletree Hollow Symphony, Terry Thomas and Teresa Lewis.
Both were born and raised in Appletree Hollow. Although they
were from large families, they captured the attention of
the residents at a very early age by recreating the sounds
of nature on small homemade horns.
I am sure there must be other diary entries but all I know,
at this time,is that they started the Appletree Hollow -
"Symphony of Sounds" at the young age of 16.
I hope to find more information in one of the other diary journals.
