Beach Kitty by LolaLynn

Beach Kitty is a print of my original acrylic ACEO painting. Printed on card stock, each card is hand embellished with acrylic paint to give it that personal touch.

"Beach Kitty" was inspired by Rebekah's Japanese cat, Gumi. When Beka lived in Yokohama, Gumi miraculously turned up during "typhoon #17." He was beat up and cut and looked like a grey kitten. Some of her students helped her find a veternarian and then with the translation. What a surprise to find such beautiful deep auburn fur under all that dirt. He has a little knob on the end of his tail and looks like all of the other toms that inhabit Maita, a suburb of Yokohama. Gumi is fully Americanized now and hangs out with all of the other surfer cats at nearby Jones Beach.

10% of LolaLynn's sales (unless otherwise designated) go to EFA's charity of the month.
