New painting at long last


A friend of mine who is an amazing knitter and I made a deal. she would knit a scarf that looked like a dragon for me, and I would paint a picture of her kitty, Buffy, for her. At long last, I have finished the portrait of Buffy. It is part collage and part acrylic painting. I need to varnish it, and it will be ready to go meet the real Buffy! BTW, Buffy looked at the photo that I sent to her mistress, and she was a bit distressed that it looked like she didn't have a tail. Fortunately we were able to explain to her satisfaction that in the painting she was SITTING on her tail!

Wow! When I clicked on the picture and saw the close up, this is just amazing! Love the flowers in the background, and I would have recognized Amber's cat anywhere! ;o)

glad you like it, Queenie! The flowers come from collaging pieces from a wildly bright printed party napkin!~
