A graphite pencil drawing on 12 x 9" smooth Bristol board. Sam was a cat who came by for a meal and human contact with us, but basically a free agent (a stray). He had one partially closed eye. He was a lot of fun and would sit patiently in a chair at the table on our deck, waiting for his meal to cook on the grill. He visited us for about 2 years through all kinds of weather and then just disappeared and we never saw him again. We missed Sam for a long and still do. He taught us so much about the spirit of friendship and giving.
