PURPLE CAT

18 x 20 mixed media gallery wrap canvas
$250

For some bizarre reason it is nearly mid-night and I'm wide awake. This is so unlike me.

So how do you like the purple cat? I had such fun creating this piece. The silver heart in the middle of her tummy sports beautiful beads.

I like the halo. I'm always looking at those beautiful New Mexican retablos and they all have halos so I thought, this sweet cat should sport one too.

The process for this creation was particularly enjoyable. I love layering on the first pieces of paper, toning them down with color, painting the focal point and then the icing of beads on the heart just makes me smile.

I hope you like it too.

Wow! I haven't visited here for a while (sorry 'bout that! :)), and there's so much new work! I love the purple cat, it's beautiful. The paper layering in the background is really nice - I like the texture it gives. Such cool stuff happening here!
