Furrowed Brow and a Collector Photo of Painting in Home

Furrowed Brow  Oil on panel, 8" x 8,"  $285.
A collector sent me a picture of my painting, "Camus" in her beautiful study.  


I love it. It's really gratifying to see this, makes me glad I do what I do. (Thanks, M!)
If you have one of my paintings hanging in your home, I'd love to see a picture!  
Today's painting took two days to get right... Kitty's furrowed brow cracks me up. It's better life.

Hope to see you!

Cally and a vintage still life prop!

Cally  Oil on panel, 8" x 8," $285.
For an artist who (mostly) paints cats, you'd think I'd quit buying still life props.  Nope.  Couldn't resist the vintage plastic bunny.  Acquired at a garage sale last summer, it is 16" tall!  Some day I'll paint him, he lives on my desk for now. :)
I'm very happy with today's painting... Kitty knew how to strike a pose and she was very photogenic. Don't be surprised if you see her here again!

Hunts by Night

Hunts by Night  Oil on panel, 8" x 8,"  SOLD
My paintings are sold ready to hang...  I'd been using screw eyes forever, a little change this year:   D rings!  
They're easier to grab from the back and much easier to install, will attach a picture for your extreme amusement.  :)

Smokey

Smokey  Oil on panel, 8" x 8,"  $285.
Last painting of the year, me thinks.  I will probably take the next week or two off from painting.  Smokey has a profile on the shelter website, here. Pretty cat with siblings, all waiting for adoption.  
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.  Thank you for subscribing to and visiting this blog.

Me and My Shadow

Me and My Shadow  Oil on panel, 8" x 8,"  $285.
Photo of kitty model above.  Lots of kittens at the shelter and pigeons (!) in the small mammal room... I wonder how they came to be there, will try to find out when I visit next.
