I’ve been remiss in updating this blog, so let me get right to it. I’ve got some news and some art to post. First off, more cat heads:
“Dilute Calico” 4×4″ oil on panel.
“Long Whiskers,” 5×7″ oil on canvas panel.
“Earnest Orange,” 8×8″ oil on canvas panel.
“I am Siamese if You Please,” 6×6″ oil on panel.
As has been already firmly established, I love painting the cat heads. These particular cat heads were a joy! Lots of fun, very diverse cat “looks.” And I feel I’m just getting started! I’ve got a whole lot more cat head paintings in me! 🙂
On to other news, I am a “featured artist” on
Daily Paintworks this month, because the unthinkable happened— I got an award! Me! Who would have guessed? Continue reading “Plethora of Cat Heads, other news” →
