Cat Nouveau oil painting cat

Cat Nouveau  Oil on wood  6" x 6" 
Here's my attempt to combine Coco with an art nouveau pattern that includes a flower, butterfly and bird...  Maybe a bit much for such a small painting.  But I will return to the art nouveau motif w/cats or flowers again.  Note to self:  Buy smaller brushes!


  1. Love it!! I love cats, nouveau and flowers, so you have my attention. Maybe I can talk my husband into letting me get a kitty for painting reference — I miss my cats.

  2. Beautifully painted, Diane! Wonderful job on the fur!!

  3. It looks the cat from our neighbours!;-)

  4. I just bought a set of miniature brushes at Hobby Lobby and I love them. My art teacher would be appalled, she was always taking my tiny brushes away from me, trying to get me to loosen up and be more painterly.
