I’m sending you my latest Ocean Grove cat painting entitled “Tiger Lilly.” This little beauty lives on Heck Avenue. I often see her outside enjoying the sunshine as I walk by on my daily stroll through town.”
“This past Saturday I saw Tiger sprawled out on the sidewalk. I stopped to let her know that I just finished her portrait, however, she was not interested… too busy soaking up the sun.”
Editor’s Note: MaryLou Shipman loves cats. She paints them all the time. Her subjects are often wild creatures tip-toeing around the Grove. She sends them to us, and we can’t resist posting their pictures.
Dog lovers wonder why cats are allowed to roam around while the dogs can’t. In fact, cats love to torture dogs—they hide in ambush and then leap out from the side yards and scare the dogs and the dog walkers. But MaryLou continues to show the cats as beautiful creatures, and we love to post her paintings. —PG
