The Yard Stalker 10"x20"
I seem to be in a frame of mind to paint cats. I painted this from a photo I took of our dear departed Pim. She was quite a cat and little birds trembled when she appeared. I discovered while painting this that I'm not a fan of trying to paint grass. Do you give it a lot of detail? Do you hint? I settled for hinting because, if I tried to paint every blade of grass, my guy would have come into the studio, heard me giggling insanely a mad glint in my eye saying, "just one more blade, just one more blade...". Not a pretty picture. I'm sure it would have pushed me over the edge instead of just poking me in the eye like it did. Thanks for looking.
