I made a lot of noise at the beginning of this year--about how I wanted to paint BIGGER in 2011. It didn't quite happen.again. Honestly, it's been two years I've been talking about painting bigger! Anyway, one of my ideas is to combine cool patterns, flowers and cats. This painting is a good example of a try-out with just a cool pattern+cat and I'm very happy with it... not to mention highly motivated to try painting bigger again. My plan right now is to finish off the year with 6x6s. ...and try out a few bigger paintings in 2012.
