small cats

These are going to the small stuff show at bear and bird gallery in Florida. They're small! Only 5"x5" each.

I'm trying to get bolder with my colors, and a little looser with my paintings. I tend to paint really, really, really anal-retentively, leaning over the painting and holding my breath and stuff. I think things come out a little stiff sometimes because of that though! These were small and simple enough that I could just kinda do them without over thinking.

The first one is based on my cat Milo. He was orange and crazy! Now he is a ghost cat.



The siamese is based on nothing, because I never had a siamese myself. Or maybe its based on my awesome vintage TV lamp that Sean got for me... (that is not a photo of MY lamp, but mine is seriously identical)



They're off to Florida! By by kitties!

your work is getting so strong. The color in these is just so pretty. Even though they are small these are some of my favorite paintings youve done so far. Continue being bold, and dont be afraid to get dirty.

Amo a los gatos y tus pinturas me parecen maravillosas llenas de calidez. Mi gato se llama Dirceu y es muy gordo. Si quieres te mando su foto. Saludos Ceci de Buenos Aires.
