This is my version of Morisot's impressionistic painting, "On the Lake". I think if a cat was in the boat it would be a much livelier excursion! It looks nice framed up like this~ "On the Lake with a Cat" is available on Ebay now.
I'm pretty sure that if Van Gogh were a cat he would look like this one. This fun, chunky little painting is available on Ebay. Check it out and check back. I will be listing some more silly cat versions of famous paintings!
I have been busy re-doing my room. This is one of the projects. It was pretty easy. First, I scanned some old photos of when my kids were little, then I printed them in sepia tones on plain computer paper. Then, I arranged them like a collage on the inner panels of the doors and used Mod Podge to glue them on. I painted the recessed border with burgundy folk art paint and put a light layer of antique metallic gold on it for kind of a gold leaf look. When that was all dry, I Mod Podged the tops of the photos. It looks really vintage now!
This is my latest painting, "Just Looking". I used really heavy acrylics on this one. Lots of texture on the brush strokes. I don't usually use very many pastel colors but I suppose I was feeling a bit of spring in the air today! I will list this on Ebay later this evening. The link is at the top of this page~
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
