Up Against the Wall

6 X 8 Oil on Masonite $125
Today's painting's title somehow seems appropriate for election day! So many lives are thought to be hinged upon the results of today's outcome at the poles. Meanwhile, Easy stands in the winter morning sun by the barn door waiting for his breakfast. His life won't be affected by who gets to be on the ballot next November.

The studio windows are all installed and working properly. Two of the four high north windows can be opened - if I can get up there! The peak of the interior ceiling is 19 feet, so we are working on a remote motorized opener.
My wonderful electrician neighbor worked all day yesterday in the cold blustery winter weather (it snowed last night!) and got a bunch done. I still need to make another trip to Home Depot - the bathroom ceiling heater/exhaust won't fit where we want it, so I have to find something else.
The air conditioner is supposed to be installed today, then we can close off the attic opening. My kitties have discovered that they can crawl on the roof, into the top of the bathroom ceiling and over into the opening into the attic. I kept hearing meows coming from the attic and discover them in their new hiding place. The three of them are carbon copies of each other and act en masse - the Three Musketeers of Catdom.
Proverbs 28:28
When the wicked rise to power, people go into hiding; but when the wicked perish, the righteous thrive.

The kitties are precious!

The studio is WONDERFUL!
The kitties are all from the same litter? They sure look like triplets.
