Day Dreamer – Black Cat Painting

I’ve done a few of these modern, semi abstract portraits this year and really wanted to do one of Harry for me. So here he is, sitting on red cushions, staring out of the window, in the sun, day dreaming. I wanted it to be full of glorious colour to set off his beautiful coat. He’s a beautiful boy, he may be black but he is full of colour too.


I’ve finished him just in time because today is National Black Cat Day and we’re celebrating everything that’s wonderful about black cats. Black cats are so often overlooked in rescue centres. Maybe because people don’t think black is a beautiful colour, I hope this painting shows just how wrong they are! This happens to black dogs too by the way.

Harry himself was rescued from the snow one winter and we have never regretted inviting him into our lives.
