August has some interesting dates!
WHY a day for mosquitoes?
There's a patron saint for dogs?
Aren't most days work like a dog day?
Why only DOGust Universal Birthday? What about cats?
All dates approximate...
Eshimo, for Laura, acrylics on wood, 8 by 8 inches, commissioned lovely black cat with burnt Sienna highlights. If you'd like a pet portrait, please check links below this post.
July is soooo summer, here in the Northern Hemisphere.
Andy and I will be in our pool, at baseball games, and probably outside on our South Florida back patio with all the fans turned on.
Here's a little about what's up during July, for pets and animals. All dates approximate.
Pick Me for Your Lap Sienna Blues Cat, 6 by 6inches, acrylics on wood, ©2018, $95 please contact me
I love June. It's summertime. It's all about cats. Take a look at the pet holidays and you'll notice lots of Cat Days!
My favorite day? National Garfield the Cat Day.
I used to send out calendar pages to my email subscribers. This was my painting for June: Hungry Cats See Through Aquarium, 14 by 11 inches, acrylics on canvas panel, ©2013. There should be a familiar looking cat in this painting, lol.
There are so many things this month of May besides the whole Star Wars reference, lol.
I think my favorite is World Turtle Day, at the end of the month!
This isn't a mutt, but had to share this cutie pie I painted for a gift for Beth. This little character kept me in smiles while we shared my imaginary studio pet playground. He's 8 by 8 inches, acrylics on wood panel. If you'd like your own pet painting, see below for more info!
Easter this year falls on the 12th. There is so much more to April than bunnies and chicks!
Here is the list for April for holidays concerning pets and animals.
Happy Cat with Hearts in Flowers, acrylics on paper, 14 by 11 inches ©2018

All the animals come Marching in...sorry...had to write that...
For your social media posting pleasure, here are the March dates for different animals!
This was a commissioned pet portrait. This pig's name is Vidalia, she is 7 by 5 inches, acrylics on stretched canvas, 2019.
This month has quite a number of happy holidays for pets and animals.
To give you a heads up, here they are for loving on social media and elsewhere!
In honor of National Cat Health Month, this is Shadow Cat on Graffiti Wall, 11 x 8 inches, acrylics on vintage paper, mounted to paper. It's available for $150 as is, $210 mounted on gallery canvas. Shipping/handling extra.
One thing I really want you to enjoy is the background of your pet's painting.
This gets tricky when you are going to show off your pet painting in the same home.
These two paintings are going to different homes, but the cat is going to a home where they already have a blue background. So the cat's is a little more green, compared to the blue of the dog's.
Can you tell the difference between the backgrounds?
Very bad photo, I'll admit. It's of a painting I did 200? titled Penguin Pose.
I'm doing my best to ring in this 2020 with posts about animal and pet holidays each month.
Sooooo,...for January, here are the pet holidays:
2nd: Happy Meow Day for Cats Day
5th: Penguin Awareness Day
21st: Squirrel Appreciation Day
22nd: National Answer Your Cat Questions Day
and if you'd love to have a Lucky Cat drop into your email from now through Chinese New Year on the 25th, please sign up here: add me to my email list.
PS: If you'd like to adopt any of the paintings here, please contact me. They are all available.
Yes, this is actually a day, National Take Your Cat to the Veterinarian's Day.
I certainly hope everyone realizes that this is any day that your cat needs to visit the doctor! If you are veterinarian, may your office Not be overrun with felines, today.
Smiles with paint on my hands,
PS: this cat painting is up for adoption. 6 by 6 inches, acrylics on wood panel, ready to display
