I'm All Ears: A Curious Calico Cat Portrait by 

“Calico” refers only to a color pattern on the fur, not to a breed. Calico cats are domestic cats with a spotted or parti-colored coat that is predominantly white, with patches of two other colors (often the two other colors are orange tabby and black). Outside of North America the pattern is more usually called tortoiseshell-and-white. In the province of Quebec, they are sometimes called chatte d’Espagne (French for ‘(female) cat of Spain’). Other names include tricolor cat, mi-ke (Japanese for ‘triple fur’) and lapjeskat (Dutch for ‘patches cat’); calicoes with diluted coloration have been called calimanco or clouded tiger. Occasionally, the tri-color calico coloration is combined with a tabby patterning. This calico patched tabby is called a caliby.
“I’m All Ears” was painted from a digital photograph of a family pet.
In this acrylic painting on canvas I wanted to capture the quirky posture of this curious calico cat. The original is SOLD.

    the thumbnail of this painting adds a spark of funny animation smile to the cat that was strangely lost in the bigger photo.. but the large size is still very nice! Congrats on the sale. I too have so far only sold one, but its a fun hobby that I pray will pay off some day. Don

    Of course I chuckle at the comment of the nervous breakdown,,I’m sure there is no stretch, as a youth I learned to paint by number. each number designated a particular color, I view this as a potential latch and hook design, perhaps attractive to the Feline lover. The moment shared enjoyable as well ! Paul
