Drawing a friend’s cat on a stone retaining wall reminded me to look for the gestures in nature. Sometimes you only have seconds to respond.

My name is Jacqueline Perry. I am an artist and a pastor serving a congregation in the Midwest. In addition to my usual duties I lead art workshops as a way to explore lives of faith. Before I was ordained, I received an M.F.A in Painting from Boston University. I have been an art teacher and exhibited work over the years. Living on the Great Plains has awakened my love for nature. I am amazed by nature, art and people.

      Thanks, Danita. We packed up the SUV with easels and (probably too much) equipment today. Driving up to an area near the Allegheny Forest (Pennsylvania) in the morning. Sketching the cat and the garden was a nice warm up this afternoon. Looking forward to the woods and streams Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday!

    Love the way a few simple lines convey the cat.
