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 Union Soldier Cat.
“All wars are sacred to those who have to fight them. If the people who started wars didn’t make them sacred, who would be foolish enough to fight?”
~ Margaret Mitchell, “Gone With the Wind”
“Union 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.
Archival prints featuring Union Soldier Cat can be purchased in my shop, and from me personally at shows.
