Coco Suave 'Tis the season 2 purge or paint over

Coco Suave II  Oil on wood  12" x 12"  NFS
'Tis the season to purge or in this case paint the whole darn thing over.  An issue with painting intricate background patterns is that they can easily steal the show.  I went back into this one thinking I'd ease some of the pattern contrast-iness and that quickly evolved into softening and refining Coco-fur.  This one is as good as it's gonna get, time to step away!!   Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!


  1. And to you and yours and to Coco!

  2. That is freaking exquisite!

    Merry Xmas!

  3. "This one is as good as it's gonna get"

    And that's pretty darn good.

    Happy Christmas!

  4. Merry Christmas to you and yours. I used to have a cat that gave me just this look. You have inspired me to try and paint my cats.
