Black Cat

Black Cat  8x10  Oils on canvas panel

This is NOT an accurate portrait of a kitty cat and it is NOT intended to be!  I've played with colors a "bit" - having a little fun.  I think that I'd like to make a larger version - maybe 9"x16".  Maybe, maybe not.

Sure enough, this image does not represent the painting very well. Something gets lost in the transition from the painting into my digital camera into my computer then into Corel Paintshop Photo Pro X3.  Anybody that follows my blog knows (or should know) that my camera and I have a love-hate relationship going.

My automatic digital camera is sometimes surly and pretends that it can't focus. I on the other hand am absolutely clueless about photographing paintings. Or anything else for that matter.  Point, click = photo.  DUH!


  1. What a great cat! I didn't know you painted this one!!! Good job, Dear.

  2. I did it yesterday morning, before lunch! It isn't dry so I can't bring it inside. :-(

  3. I like the eyes of this cat. Serious ones!

  4. I wanted to do something very DIFFERENT for a change and used my photo editing software to "play" with the photo. I don't know what I did or how I did it but I liked these effects. :-)
