JUNE: 627

June - Mowing 627
encaustic mixed media on birch 8x10
When I was a little girl, my Dad and I had a game.  He was an artist and painted Northwest scenery, landscapes, boats, seascapes and the like.  But, in almost every painting, he hid a cat for me.  Somewhere, somehow, there was a wee kitty hiding in the foreground, sky or wherever it could be.  It was my job to find it.  So, in this rather large painting of June - there are two kitties (here is the other one) painted in with love - just for my Dad. 
Almost to the end of June.  You can catch up with the painting a day in June project - HERE.  Happy Friday everyone!! 
Here is JUNE in it's entirety  - just a few more to go
