This was the final piece that I did for the Dreams and Fears show – took me a while to get a photo of it. Funny story behind it. . . at least, I think it’s funny now. I’d been working on it off and on for about a week, and it wasn’t pleasing me. I was almost at the point where I was going to re-prime the canvas and start again, when. . . my delightful cat, decided that the water jar (with three brushes in it), looked like it might be fun to knock over. She did, and then ran – with me howling and chasing her (it landed on pale carpet – as I tend to temp fate when I paint). As I rounded the couch for the second time, I kicked the canvas over on it’s side. . . and made the startling realization that the piece was done – it just needed a different perspective. Kitty got treats, and the mess was cleaned up.
18″×36″ canvas
medium: acrylic paint – freehand lines No airbrush, compass or ruler was tortured during the production of this piece.
The original painting is for sale atm, but is currently locked into a show until the end of the month.

In memory of the three sable brushes that met their end during it’s production.

    I love it when a plan comes together. Kitty knew best this time. Superbly done by both of you. :o)

    My oldest son used to “help” his dad on his wildlife paintings. One time Chris had a beautiful deer painting almost finished. We got up and found that Brian had added several bright red brush strokes to the canvas. We scolded him and Chris was able to clean the new paint off. The next morning, Brian had added twice as many red splotches and the painting was completely ruined. Unfortunately, he never did pick the art up as well as your cat did. You two make a brilliant team!

  • Lol – reminds me of my son actually! I passed along your comments to the kitty, and she was pleased! Thank you so much.
