Cats are one of my favorite subjects. I think it most appropriate that I start of my "FB Art Challenge" with some kitties.
I was tagged to do the challenge by artist and friend Myrna Wacknov. The challenge is to post three paintings per day for five days. I get to tag other artists each day.
I think it will be fun curating a micro show every day, going through my various collections.
Today's watercolor paintings are from my "kittykitty" series which features a cat. The cat was my Aunt Mary's cat. She was a quiet, elegant being who liked to lie around with an air of deep knowledge. Or, perhaps she was just a cat staring out into space.
"Kitty Kit…" my new painting is unusual in that I added text. I wanted to imply that the cat is being called by someone off painting. The cat is sitting on a pillow, comfortable and will move if and when she desires.
The "KittyKitty" painting series has done well for me. Both "Groovy Kitty" and "Seriously KittyKitty" have been accepted into juried exhibitions. Just as important, the series became a good vehicle to study design and style.
I have done at least 30 paintings or watercolor studies. They're fun!
