painting of a bobcat by Linda BudgeDuring an art studio tour, several people had congregated outside my studio at the refreshment tent, talking and enjoying the lovely weather.  Unbeknownst to most, a small bobcat walked up the path, sidling thru the wild marigolds.  As I watched thru my studio window, it paused several times, eyeing the people, evidently curious.   Remarkably self assured and unafraid, I thought.  Kitty attitude!! And definitely, typical bobcat behavior.
