Yes, another cat painting! I decided to go small again, and recently completed this tiny kitty portrait in oils. As I mentioned in a previous post, I love Trekell’s mini painting panels, which was what I used here. The texture on the painting surface is far smoother than the other mini 2×2″ canvas panels on the market.
I can complete a painting this small in a relatively short amount of time, but in this case, I thought I had “finished” the painting but then changed my mind and did a little more work on it a few days later. Sometimes artists need to get some distance from recently finished art to see if there is anything else that needs a little work, and that was the case here. What also surprised me was how I was able to add far more details than I expected on something of this size, which is a good thing!
Like many of you, I’m stuck at home, waiting out this scary pandemic. Fortunately, I’ve got adequate supplies (including cat food!) at home, so I am settled in without much panic at the moment. Therefore, what else is there to do but update my blog? Right?
I’ve done some painting since this blog was last updated. Here are two oils (randomly selected):
A lot has gone on since my last update. Some scary, some big, but a lot of good.
But to quote Tim Conway Jr (who I listen to a lot when I paint), “Who cares!” Who cares about all my personal travails at the moment? This is an art blog so let’s talk about art.
I’m planning on revamping this site a bit so there should be more posts coming soon. What better time to do it but now?
Yeah, like a lot of artists, I’ll be painting a lot…since I’m at home anyway, it’s a perfect time.
I hope everyone else is doing well right now. Stay safe, stay home, study a lot, and if you are an artist, paint a lot!
