The Story Behind Cool:

  I took my grandson and granddaughter to the Cincinnati Zoo.  My grandson was in seventh grade and a budding photographer and movie maker.  He took the photo that I used as my reference.  This painting almost painted itself, I am glad to say.  It was the first time I had tried fur!!!  I have been very pleased with it.  It was selected as the People’s Choice at the 2013 Woman’s Art Club Show.

My grandson went on to enter the photo in the Public Library of Hamilton County and Cincinnati Youth Photo Contest.  It won first place!!!!  He received his first class at the Cincinnati Art Academy.
