I have inserted cats into some of my other paintings, so look for them on other pages. What can I paint for you? Contact me for info!
"Rascal" acrylic on an 8x8 gallery-wrapped canvas $90
"Miss Prixie Pants" textured acrylic on a 20x16 traditional canvas. Made as a gift for my daughter - the background is supposed to look like Prixie painted it herself.
The "Cat Room" Project
My daughter, Jennifer Truett, asked me to paint a mural in her cat room, but I didn't want to spend a lot of time standing on a ladder painting, so I decided to make individual images that could be mounted on the walls or windows.. These take a LOT of paint because acrylic shrinks as it dries. My first pieces wound up with pinholes that let light through, but they were lightweight enough to stick to the window glass with no other adhesive. They've been up for several months now with no problem. Other pieces were attached to the walls with double-sided poster tape except for the very first one we hung, the Gypsy Cat, which is on removable tab stickers - you can see the tabs behind her ears. Then, after creating these pieces, I decided to do a mural on the 10 foot x 10 foot blank wall that was left. I worked on it for six months, working 2 to 6 hours a day. It sure was fun!
The walls in the room are a soft sage green.
On the left are Surprised Cat in the window with some butterflies I made while experimenting with how to do these cats, and Gypsy Cat to the right. Surprised Cat and the butterflies are just stuck to the glass by pressing the acrylic against the glass - no adhesive. They'll peel right off.
In the picture below, Sleepy Cat is above the window frame toward the center of the room and 4 Cats are on the window to the right. 4 Cats has swirls of mixed colors in each cat, and they all have beaded collars.
The painting with grapes wasn't for this room - I brought it over after finishing it to show Jen.
