New Rainbow cat after a make over by 

Oh, I’m so naughty ! Once again I painted over most of a perfectly good painting. I actually even liked the painting , Rainbow Cat , but felt it needed something fixed, and one thing lead to another, and suddenly I had a totally different painting . Oh well, I got a good response when I showed this new version on facebook. (lots of likes) It should be mentioned that I had the previous version with all the rainbow colours in many exhibitions, and nobody wanted it. So doesn’t really matter. Besides it is still available as a print.
Acrylics on canvas
30 cm x 40 cm

I have been a professional artist since 1990, starting out doing pencil portrait commissions. These days I have my own back yard studio, where I work towards future exhibitions, and teach weekly classes & workshops in watercolour and acrylics as well as drawing.
My studio is located in Hobson’s Bay ( Altona Meadows) , Victoria

    LOL! I cannot believe you did that. You are naughty. I love t his one with its little heart chest and rainbow face. Beautifully done. He’s a beauty. :o)

  • Thank you for making me feel better, Bunny! Your comment made me smile. Actually I didn’t really regret painting over it, until one of my students told me he liked it better before. Ha, ha. : ))

    I could use a make over, Karin!!
    I did the same thing yesterday and gulp..“note to self…don’t ever do that again”!!
    Yours is reinvented wonderfully!

  • Ha, ha, love your comment! Yes, can relate. Thanks for the kind words. Glad I’m not the only one… Well, it’s not all bad, but kind of wish I would have just started a new painting instead of painting over the previous one. Oh well, never mind. You live and you learn. : ))

    Tell that student that life is full of regrets. That is how you know you lived. At least it didn’t physically hurt. :o) And it is gorgeous!

  • Oh thank you, Bunny ! You are very sweet. Oh, it didn’t bother me that he liked the other one better, because I do like it when people are honest. It’s something you have to take on board when you put your work out there. You have to be prepared for some criticism. I get very little negative feedback, but I respect the fact that everyone has different taste. Actually , my husband is usually the only one who always tells when he doesn’t like one of my paintings. He can be brutally honest at times. :D

    Love this!!!! That is the problem; a work of art is never done. I have to hide some of mine, give away or sell or I would be doing the same thing. You always want to go back and tinker, somtimes it is a good idea, others I have thrown away afterwards. This is super, and I love all the texture in the cat!

  • Thank you, Angie ! What a marvellous comment. I guess we can all relate. That’s the thing with acrylics. You can always keep going , but I find it a good way to learn from my experiments and mistakes. Sometimes it can be very upsetting when you look back how a painting was (from photos of work in progress), and then you decide you liked it better before you started to tinker with it. I am pretty sure I will leave this one alone now. I am only a bit concerned that he hasn’t got whiskers. :))
