"Content," 4" x 5", orange tuxedo tabby cat portrait, acrylic on canvasboard, $184 to the first taker. Inquiries may come to me.
When you hold this piece in your hands it's almost like having a little one in your arms. The scale is such that it's a little larger than life, but full of comfort and contentment.
With this painting I wanted to crop in so tightly that the cat became something else altogether. Besides, that gave me an excuse to dwell on the colors that lay in between the tabby stripes. I almost wish the piece were a little larger, because I ran out of space to include the brilliant orange of the light filtering through her ear and the delightful curls of the cheek whiskers. Guess that's another excuse to try my hand at something similar down the road.
Thanks, as always, for looking at and sharing my artwork with your friends and family.
See you tomorrow,
