This photo of the kids was very faded – the point I couldn’t see their faces or even make out features so they became cats. When life hand me faded children photos, I make cat portraits, or lemonade or something like that.
Okay! Let’s talk about the piece shall we?
This piece is acrylics, gouache, ink, and watercolors painted directly on a vintage photo.
I was chatting with some folks and we were talking about our first crushes. I remember mine vividly. I was 5 years old and NO ONE could tell that I was not marrying Vincent Price. I wanted a spooky husband damnit. And Vincent and I were going to live happily in the hills in our blue house with a cat in every window.
This is a painting I’ve wanted to do for years but just never did – glad it is finally out of my brain and onto paper. Now this original can be on your walls!
Contact me if you’d like to purchase – giclee prints are available for $25 each.
Is it really possible to have too many cats? What’s line between cat lover and cat hoarder?
I believe every artwork tells a story and Here is the story behind this piece.
I love cats. I established a mandatory limit of 4 because that’s all my budget can deal with – otherwise I would definitely end up with too many cats because I want to give every unwanted cat, especially the ones considered “unadoptable” a furever home.
I use high quality acrylic watercolor, gouache, ink, charcoal on all my artworks.
Measurements : 5 x 7 inches painted directly on printed photo image mounted on heavy mat board.
