A few weeks ago I was painting at Finley Wildlife Refuge.  This is the second painting that was started at this location.  It is the Cabell Lodge which was built circa 1912 and is now used by the headquarters office for the Willamette Valley National Wildlife Refuge.

The little black cat I added for a touch more life as I didn’t see anyone else around and it seemed a shame that such a fine building didn’t have a little more activity.

News:

As I will be preparing for two shows this spring 2014, I will be reducing the number of small paintings that I produce.  Hopefully, I will be able to complete at least one per week, but I need to concentrate on some larger works.   Please stay tuned!

Once again, Katie Johnson has given me inspiration to paint.  Her beautiful portrait of her Kitty Grimm is posted today for her “Saturday Silliness” post. 
Check the photo from which I worked by clicking here.  Her cat is a beautiful, graceful black cat which I did try at first to paint elegantly. Then my own Saturday Silliness took over and I changed the painting with a nod to my wild side.  It is definitely more me.  Sorry Katie!

In the past when I have painted a cat, I have often focused in on the face because the eyes always intrigue me.  However, I liked how this tiny kitten looked on the chair, so small and cute.  So I decided not to back away from the challenge of painting the whole darn fluffy thing.

This painting was done for a DPW Challenge with the photo supplied by Dreama Tolle Perry.
