I didn't have a plan for this painting, it just sort of happened. When I finished it... I just kept thinking about Alice In Wonderland and the White Rabbit. In this case, a White Cat, just like my Rudy. It's now listed on eBay.
Well... I finally decided to turn our storage/office space at the Espresso shop into an Art Studio of sorts. It's still a little bare, but I have a lot of ideas going around in my head...so it should look more like a studio soon. We've been trying to sell the Espresso shop for 4 years now...with no luck... I think having both of my businesses in one location will be easier. So here is what I see all day, while painting between customers! Coffee Shop Kitty is still with me at the shop. She's so happy there...it's working out well with her. And, here is a picture of my new painting in progress, I'll post the finished painting tomorrow.
Driving to town yesterday was like moving through a gorgeous impressionistic painting. The trees are so beautiful. Just took my breath away. Here are a couple of pictures, I hope to take more before the leaves fall...
I found these great little papier mache boxes and decided to give them a try. I love them! I like the texture that shows through the paint, and it was fun lining the inside. I've been wanting to do more mixed media, so this is a beginning!
Most of the time I drink black, house coffee at the shop. Today I happened to find a rather unique mug that I've had for years, but forgot about...so I just had to have a cappuccino. I added whipped cream, and sprinkled raw sugar on top...it was so good!
A favorite subject of mine...Guardian Angels...this one is protecting a sleepy kitty. Speaking of sleepy!!! I think my two jobs are catching up with me... It's time for bed...when I have trouble putting words together! Have a great evening!
I should be cleaning house or doing laundry before I head to the coffee shop...but I want to share my two new kitty paintings with you. I have a purple kitty wearing orange glasses, and a sleeping kitty with a heart on her chest. In 'real life'... I just love seeing all of the unique patterns in our pets' fur, like our Cleo had a gray tabby circle surrounded by white on her side...so pretty.....
