Cats are peculiar. Sometimes sneaky and suspicious. Sometimes happy and sometimes grumpy.

We have been around quit a few. Each one has its own personality.

I love seeing all the funny clips about cats on YouTube.


As an artist, I love the variations of colors and those wondrous eyes. I have painted my first cat painting from a photo.

As I painted it I kept thinking of all those funny America's Funniest Video moments of cats falling off of counters and sliding into doors.

I wondered if just for a moment I could capture some sort of personality on the canvas.

This was by far the hardest painting I have done.

I keep pressing on

I love painting animals Remember the dogs I did here and here

Maybe next time I will paint some of those infamous cows.....

Oh and see that Union Jack?

That is my piano bench that just sold!

 See whether is is painting canvas or furniture, it is all using creativity and talent that God gave me.

That feeds my soul and makes me happy. I feel blessed to be sharing it with you.

I want to thank I'm Not A Trophy Wife for featuring my White Buffet!

Thanks for entering my Facebook Giveaway!! You still have time! I will draw tonight!

You are very talented portraitist gal. Wow to have that kind of talent is wonderful. My Dad was an oil painter but I didn't seem to inherit any of that talent. I did seem to inherit love of art and crafting tho.
Your sure caught that kitty's personality. Glad you shared. Happy Weekend

We have the cutest cats, too! They are so nosy and always trying to check out what is going on!


Unknown said...

I think that is a fabulous kitty! And I love the blue with the browness of the cat. Great work!

I think a cow might be easier than a fluffy cat, unless it's a long haired cow!

Love your cat and his expressive eyes! Great capture!
