Three cats taking in the night sky show up on the roof with Cygnus the Swan showing off her magnificent wings forever lost in the summer sky in perpetual flight. Also, visible is the Summer Triangle composed of three bright stars: Deneb (the swan’s tail feathers), Altair below and the bright star Vega to the right of the swan. This beautiful piece is a digital art composite of actual photographs taken by the artist, Kathleen Horner. Cats and the Constellations © 2011.
Out of my love for cats, the beauty of the night sky and a camera, I have created a stunning digital art collection entitled “Cats and the Constellations”. These images were created from my vast collection of original photographs and brought together digitally in photoshop to create each stunning illustration. The uniqueness of these illustrations are that they give the effect of a realistically rendered painting even though each one consists of a composite of photographs. This collection is available on Red Bubble in calendars, prints, posters, greeting cards, and mounted canvas.
