Hey Diane! Now I come to look at this for a second time, I find two ways of looking at it. First is you observing the cat observing something else. Second is the cat turning its back and ignoring you, looking at nothing. Both are Ways Of Cat, but I'm sure you meant the former =) As ever, great work. Indigo x
I love them as a set. A very unique idea for a series, and I love the "zen" quality to them.
This one is a bit more "normal" than the others in that you have createda traditional use of space with the placements of ground and plants.I like them all so it is hard to pick a favorite. Do you have one you like best?
Indigo, we're having double conversations between here and FB, but yes the first--he's definitely watching for his more adventurous companion to come back! Thank you Sonya! Julie, I SO painted these with a "set" in mind, I didn't attach to them individually like I do most of the time. But if I had to pick one, it would be Number 2. I love the stillness of Coco-cat vs the bird silhouette in motion and the fact that Coco's eye color reflects the background greens.
Diane,i LOVE this series! the free brushstrokes, the values and muted colors! BRAVO!Liz
Diane,I do love the patterns in the painting, the subtle blend of colors and of course the cat theme. I enjoy receiving your posts. And given I am a painter of creatures, it is especially nice to read about your techniques.these do make a great set.
What a great series! Wonderful job.
These are wonderful. The designs are enticing, and there's something very nostalgic about the arrangement of more highly rendered cat against flat botanical shapes. I'm going to dig deep to find the connection from long ago. Beautiful.
Fantastic series. Very inspiring!
These are amazing. For me, they have a slightly surrealist quality. They're absolutely gorgeous.
