|The Elder Oil on panel, 8"x8," SOLD|
it's cage free cats and two outdoor enclosed spaces, offering natural light. Formed in 1965, the shelter claims to be the "largest, oldest and most well-know charitable organization in the US that deals solely with cats..." The cats live in a residential home that has been converted into a shelter. The shelter is no-kill and offers lifetime care for surrendered cats. Adoptions too, if you are local to LA. Here's a link.
Free range cats everywhere, I had a delightful time photographing them. This is the second such shelter I've visited... The home was oddly situated, nearly under the 10 freeway, a super busy spot. Despite that, I found it to be remarkably clean and peaceful. "The Elder" the first of two paintings of the same cat, the second will post next!
