Cattitude


sold

This was a total experiment. I took some photos of this cat last year at a friend's house but wasn't excited about them because the sun wasn't out and the ground was totally boring. But I ran across it again yesterday and thought, "what if I paint the whole thing with big juicy strokes and try to use a different color for every one?" Well, I ended up repeating some colors, as you can see, but for the most part I stuck with the experiment, and am quite pleased with the outcome.

This is such a great cat!! It looked like a photo when I first spotted it on the small photo on my blog roll, so I was amazed at how loose and large the brush strokes were when I clicked on it. I love your loose style with a passion!!
