Cat on the Stairs by Sarah  Mac

This was my first artwork using my cat, Monkey as the ‘star’. I found a fantastic staircase reference from an old plantation house and I felt that it was asking for a curious cat.
This one hangs in a shabby looking wooden frame in my hallway. It was the first artwork I entered into a show and it won the peoples choice award!

Pastel and Pencil, about 25 × 30cm. 2005

    The texture on the walls and wooden floor look incredibly accurate, I really love the winding staircase and that part up in the corner where we see a bit of the boards of the staircase, it really captures age in that small, significant part, and the cat really offers a spooky story yet to be told. Love it.

  • Thankyou for your comment and specifics of what appealed to you. I’m glad you like it and thankyou!
