The Cat with Hands acrylic painting

Cat with Human hands

I recently saw a video on YouTube, where I spend way too much time.  The Cat with Hands is a short film directed by Robert Morgan. It was such a well-done short story – I got all inspired and painted my own imagined cat with hands.

The piece is up for sale at eBay if you’re interested and otherwise – check out this video! You’ll LOVE it! And support the maker and share it with your friends 🙂

Pink Pineapples 3×5 on Vintage Postcard

This painting started off as just pink pineapples inspired by a very funny story I was told by a friend. Then it turned into a lady with pink pineapples… that are apparently levitating. I think it’s a fun little piece 😀

Remember the Little Things 5×8 on Wood

This is a 5×8 acrylic painting on wood. I’ve had to start over a number of times in life and it sucks but it really points out how important it is to remember the little things. The things we say and do are so much more important than material possessions.

That’s why this piece is done with shades of green (life) and lots of vines, flowers, and honey bees (they make it all happen don’t they?).

If you want to more information about this piece – it’s in the store  🙂

This is a piece I really like. The two-headed nun is juggling the green apples badly. The holy Roman church is keeping tabs on what they are doing via the ear and eye.

The Cat From Hamburg – Cats of May Series acrylic painting

WP_20160525_13_53_43_Pro

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.

Cats of May – The Kitten Who Slept Sitting Up

I had a little kitten once, and he used to crack me up. He’d play and play and PLAY as kittens do, then he’d be just sitting there trying to  decide what else to get into and he’d just fall asleep sitting there for a while.  Usually he fell over one way or the other.

This is an original watercolor painted on a vintage postcard dated 1902 – 1914

Size 3.5 x 5.5

Price : SOLD!

Robot Wins 8×10 Original Acrylic Painting

robotwins1As you know, I like to paint directly on photos. I found an old beat-up movie still from the 1956 B-classic, “Earth vs. the Flying Saucers.” The photos had some wear and damage so I mounted it carefully on a heavy mat board and then painted it. Added some flames along the fence line in the back. Gotta love the 1950’s and their phallic robots.

About this piece

I love old movies. I love old horror and sci-fi movies with a passion.
This is a photo still mounted on a heavy mat board and painted directly on the piece.
The size is 8×10.
This artwork is sealed under varnish
and…. it is sold. 🙂

Cats of May Series – Behold Stumpy the 3-Legged Cat Original Painting

The Cats of May is a series honoring great cats I’ve known and been owned by. Also the fantastic felines of friends who have been kind enough to tell me their stories and share photos of their great cats.

Today’s cat is STUMPY. Stumpy had an unfortunate encounter with a dog as a kitten and got his front left leg chewed up to the point the leg had to be removed. Along with losing a leg, Stumpy got adopted by my friend into his forever home. Having 3 legs didn’t slow him down one bit!

Size: 3.5 x 5.5 inches painted on a vintage postcard.
Price : SOLD!
