I wanted to paint a Cheshire-like cat – except this one is on a postcard about Hamburg. There was a tiny bend in the top left corner – I painted over it and taped the back (it’s about half an inch) and it’s feeling sturdy now. It doesn’t show in the finished piece.
This is part of the Cats of May series and is 3.5 x 5.5 inches vintage postcard from the early 1900s.
This acrylic piece is 3.5 x 5.5 inches painted on a vintage postcard.
The Cats of May is a series of cat paintings I am doing in May 2016 – one cat per day to remember great cats I’ve been owned by and the cats of friends. 🙂 I hope you enjoy it.
