Peeper because cats peep.

Peeper, Oil on wood, 8" x 8,"  SOLD
Is "Peeper" too corny of a title, lol? Cats do peep!  Coco has taken to laying next to the woodburner on his back.  (Super cute.)  When he sees me coming to tend the fire, he books.  He doesn't go far, just keeps a careful watch from the shadows. 

Kitty model photographed by Gloria Walters. Thanks, Gloria for letting me use the photo!

Companions on a Stroll, goat, cat

Companions on a Stroll  Oil on wood, 8" x 8," $330
My favorite and the last of the goat/sheep + kitty companion paintings for now. 




Also: When they gone, they gone.  There's still time to order my 12 Cats 2018 Calendar and get one (or several) in time for gifting!  Here's a link.

The Adolescent and the Old Timer, cat, sheep

The Adolescent and the Old Timer  Oil on wood, 8" x 6," $255. 
I tried this shelter kitty with a cow last time around.  It didn't work out so great (see that here.) Not sure this one works so good either.  Though dang, the (Lake Farmpark) sheep is the perfect classic sheep-model, want to paint him (her?) again!

The Messenger II, Richeson75 Animals, Birds & Wildlife 2017

The Messenger II  Oil on wood, 8" x 8,"  SOLD
I try not to question or overthink when inspiration strikes...  As I mentioned yesterday, it was a post on Facebook...  I'm doing a few versions of that general idea... (because cats and sheep!)  Here's the first. :)
Finalists!
Very happy to report two of my paintings are finalists in the Richeson75 International Art Competition "Animals, Birds & Wildlife 2017" They've posted award winners and finalists here. Have a look!

Hen

Hen  Oil on wood, 6" x 6," $225.
Another trip to Lake Farmpark... this time I brought an extra battery for my camera! Many reference photos were acquired...
This silliness then appeared in my Facebook feed. ...and it sparked a few more paintings (a series!?) which will start posting here tomorrow. :) Stay tuned! Not subscribed?  Take a moment to do so here.

Gustav's Cat II

Gustav's Cat II  Oil on wood, 8" x 8,"  $330.
These last two (this one and yesterday's paintings) are an attempt at a series.  I was thinking kitten + modern (pattern) + home decor friendly colors.... and I had three planned. The first two don't really jive together.  May come back around to these again later! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

This kitten looks to have some Maine Coon in her, a sweetie from the shelter.  I started wondering how many kitten paintings have I actually painted? Quite a few apparently.  Click here to see more kittens!
