Hanging Basket

Spring is here and I’ve been working on my window boxes. This is Mulberry, a brown spotted Bengal cat, sleeping in a hanging basket. Now, I know cats love odd places to sleep and they have a thing for baskets and boxes, but this is taking it to the next level!

Luckily my three prefer the sofa. :-)

This painting is sold but you can get a print here…

A Jumping Pheasant

Meet Claude, a gorgeous pheasant who regularly comes to the garden to help himself to the bird food. But who could object when he’s just so handsome with all those iridescent feathers? This is a commissioned painting, the idea was to capture him in action tackling the feeder.

He is a 16×12 acrylic painting on stretches canvas. The photo doesn’t show it but there are iridescent colours in his feathers in blues, greens and purples, gold and coppers.

Feline Art Exhibition at the National Cat Centre

I will be exhibition at the Feline Art Exhibition at the National Cat Centre in Sussex In April. This is one of the paintings going to the show.

The Society Of Feline Artists is holding a new feline art exhibition at Cats Protection in Sussex as part of Cats Protection’s 90th Anniversary celebrations. S.O.F.A. has always supported Cats Protection with yearly donations and the charity will benefit from each sale made at the show. So this is a great way of buying some art and helping cats at the same time.

The show will run from the 28th of April to the 7th of May 2017 at the National Cat Centre.

Star Cat Painting And Cello Case

Another exciting post. This is an international collaboration. I’ve been working on a painting of Burre, a gorgeous Burmese cat who lives in Finland. I’ve painted him as a star cat walking through the dark, starry Finnish night. Once he was finished last year he went off to his new home in Finland to hang on the wall.

But a photo of him went to Kapsch Cases in Croatia to be used on a new cello case for his owner’s cello. And here is a photo of the finished cello case with the model himself posing in front of it. :-)

Colourful Puma

I’ve been working on a small Puma painting. I’m thinking of some large paintings of big cats but wanted to start with something a bit smaller with a good excuse to play with lots of colour. So a glorious golden cougar with a blue green background seemed like a great place to start. She is a very colourful girl, a 10×10 inch acrylic painting on a panel. Now I just have to decide on what colour frame to get for her.

A Big Hare

I had fun with this one. :-) I wanted to do a big hare with thick juicy paint. I like this standing pose with the light coming from behind him and his shadow in front of him. He’s painted with thick acrylics using a knife and a brush on a 24×24 inch stretched canvas. I enjoyed it so much I’m tempted to do another large painting soon.
