In addition to the four leading characters in my “Gone With the Wind” portrait series ~ Rhett Butler, Scarlett O’Hara, Melanie Hamilton, and Ashley Wilkes ~ I also chose to paint a soldier from each side of the Civil War. This is my Confederate Soldier Cat.
“They knew that love snatched in the face of danger and death was doubly sweet for the strange excitement that went with it.”
~ Margaret Mitchell, “Gone With the Wind”
“Confederate Soldier Cat” is a 5″x7″ acrylic painting, on illustration board, that I donated to the 9th Annual “Art for the Animals” charity auction, supporting Guiding Eyes for the Blind.
