This cat lives around the corner. He comes and torments/ courts my cat, Miss Marmalade, through the windows at night. It fills her with rage, which she takes out on me.
Two cat paintings in a row? What have I become!
I moved about a month ago, and this is one of the first paintings of my new neighborhood. My new area is an old one- many houses around here were built between 1885 and 1920. According to the MLS, ours is from circa 1905, though I haven’t been down to the historical society to do any research. I hope to paint it soon.
This cat was just around the corner, in front of a grand Victorian.
Often seen in sushi restaurants, the Japanese Beckoning Cat is said to bring fortune and good luck.
Cat taking it easy in North Park.
I’m normally pretty uncomfortable about donating paintings to raise money in the wake of major disasters. I hate when people turn those disasters into publicity stunts.
But last night I read a lot of personal stories on Facebook of people trying to deal with the storm and its aftermath. I won’t go into the gory details. I remember after the nuke disaster in Japan, animal charities were pretty strapped.
I would like to help if I can, and I’ll donate the proceeds from this auction to an animal charity in the disaster area, so if you like the painting, please feel free to bid in this charity auction. Bidding starts at $100, and the auction fees are waived.
The proceeds from this auction will go to Empty Cages Collective, a New York-based animal and environmental advocacy organization.
This friendly cat showed up one sunny morning as I was painting in North Park.
