Earlier this summer I hit an estate sale with a lot of stuff in the basement. I picked through the goods and left with a couple of big bags of stuff, but this painting I found somehow got left behind.
Later in the day I went back and it was still there so I got it quite cheap. Someone in the house had obviously been a painter based on the canvases in the basement, but this was the only one that caught my eye. I'm guessing that "hug" written in the bottom left is the name of this siamese cat...(?)
A couple of days later I was going through the things I bought, and among the goods were some old wallets and coin purses. Sadly no money was tucked away anywhere, but while I was going through a wallet I did find some old ID cards and things, including this photo.
In the photo you can see a gentleman holding a cat. I think the lady who had used the wallet may have painted the photo, and I'm guessing the man was her husband and the cat was the cat in the painting. There's no writing on the back, but I'm pretty sure it's the siamese cat in the painting.
Kinda cool, so I'm planning to hang the snapshot beside the painting in one of our spare bedrooms.
