Totally off the beaten path!


Tall Grass and Catnip, 5.5 x 4" Mixed Media (watercolor and ink on paper)

I know, this is completely different from my usual posts... something that is simply for fun. If you've been reading my posts for the past few weeks, you know that we had to put our beloved kitty down very unexpectedly due to an unsuspected but quick development of cancer. He's been noticeably absent and very missed from our house. I'm doing a few small paintings of him, in a contemporary and almost cartoonish way, doing the various 'cat things' he liked to do. This one depicts him stalking who knows what in the tall grass and rolling in the catnip. Though he was inside the house most of the time, he loved being outside the most!

I'm not sure what I will do with these small cat paintings (more to be posted soon!), but I'm thinking they might make fun greeting cards. More on that later too!

Sorry to hear about your cat. When I arrived your blog I noticed that this picture was a lot different from you style, and said this is cool and very nice :), I wish it wasn't a bad news though. Anna :(

I'm sorry about your kitty, Helen.

It's good to try a different style every now & then.

I'd like to design cards, too.

a nice way to pay tribute to him! Our siamese was also put down a while ago, due to kitty leukaemia, and I was so glad I had done a few paintings of him, and hadn't sold all of them, so I still have one to remember him by.
