Cat Inspiration !

Just before Christmas last year we adopted two very special cats from our local animal rescue center the Decorah Humane Society.

Cat Friends

Orson & Emily

These gorgeous kitties are good friends, and are already providing me with so much entertainment, love and inspiration.

This is a new artwork of little Orson doing her favourite thing: chasing anything that moves. I imagine if she could swim, this is what she’d be doing 🙂

I am currently working on a magical realism-style painting about Emily, who is named after our favourite poet Emily Dickinson and writer Emily Bronte.

She is such an enigmatic and beautiful cat, and is proving to be the perfect muse. She has a fascination for water and loves staring at this fountain…

This is a playful piece using Emily and photoshopped artwork of mine – I liked the pattern motif of Arts & Crafts / poppies with her stark black and white markings.

I’ll be posting more about the new painting soon ~ thanks for stopping by!
