The only reference I had for Juice were two small, low quality internet images but I decided to proceed with the painting. I haven't done animals in motion very often but despite all that I'm pleased with the result. Juice, aka Principessa Guiseppina, aka Chester, is Jeff's cat.

There's a group of lake reservoirs near me that supply Marin's water. Phoenix Lake is nearest to me so I ride my bike there, hang out, and enjoy the wildlife. A system of pipes runs across the lakes. Ducks and turtles like to lounge on them and I've often thought doing a painting of this and finally got around to it after being in Marin for almost twenty years.
