A New CAT-egory of Painting

June 9, 2010

If it’s new, if it’s recently been unpacked, or if it’s off limits altogether, there’s an excellent chance that your cat will find it and claim it.

Witness:

Those are boxes from just unpacked frames I ordered courtesy of King of Frames. I can’t say enough about Randy Higbee’s company and the quality of his frames and service. I stopped painting to unpack them ( it’s the ADD in my soul ).

In the mind of a feline, there is apparently no better place to snooze than a precariously and unintentionally balanced set of boxes stacked at the back of my easel. I was wrong. It seems there IS a better place and she found it minutes later:

Still Life With Plastic

I just placed this gilt beauty on the countertop and came back to learn that in 90 degree heat and humidity what could be better than sleeping on bubble wrap especially if you possess a fur coat. I’ll have to order another frame. This is her official cot.

Good. Now that she’s settled in, I can finish this piece.

Day’s Done – 10 x 12 Oil on Panel

I use Ultramarine for most things but there’s a shot of Cobalt Blue in his shirt that really pops. Wakes up the other colors too. Bet it can’t wake up that cat, though.
