Yellow String and Painting White Cats

Yellow String  Oil on panel, 8" x 8,"  $285.
Painting white cats can be tricky, understatement. But it's good to back up and try again.  I'm including "Lucretia" and "The Invitation" here...  They both influenced "Yellow String." 
Lucretia (available here) and The Invitation, sold.

I'm on a roll this week.  Very happy with every one of the paintings to follow. (I wish every week could be so sweet.) If you are visiting, you should subscribe, here, so you don't miss any.

In other news, "The Sage" made it into the National Oil and Acrylic Painters' Society Spring 2017 Online International Exhibition. This is one of those shows, you're lucky just to get in....  I feel incredibly lucky.  Honored, in fact. Check out an amazing selection of paintings from around the world, here.

The Tyrant Tabby

The Tyrant Tabby  Oil on panel, 8" x 6,"  $220.
Dare I say I feel renewed vigor this week? I had myself convinced I was sick of painting cats which is preposterous.  A few more feline goodies to follow "The Tyrant Tabby" this week. (Some glare on photo of this painting, it's better in life.)

Girl in Pink

Girl in Pink  Oil on panel, 8" x 6,"  $220.
Happy with this one.  It has a nice balance of sketchy and fussy/finished brushwork that I usually find very difficult to do.

The Assistant, a painting of a girl and a cat

The Assistant  Oil on panel, 8" x 8,"  $285.
The girl and her coco-kitty assistant...  It's a lot to fit into an 8" x 8" painting. I will spare you the "I want to paint bigger rant" today, suffice it to say, paintings like this remind me of that.  LOL.
