Cat Heaven

“Cat Heaven” 8in x 12 in – watercolor on 140# Fabriano paper


Auction will begin at 4 pm Pacific Time Friday – Click to bid

The theme of this months’ Nibblefest is “doorways” or “open doors” and I had the idea of painting a door open onto a beautiful garden. But it looked empty so I thought I’d add a cat for a point of interest. And after I painted it, it hit me: I was painting Mandu in what I hope is an environment she would like. (There would be mice and cream, of course, but that didn’t fit the theme. ) The watermark for copyright purposes is only in the scan, not in the artwork. There

Here’s a closeup of just cat:

    Oh! Cat Mandu! Just outside the door you KNOW there are fat slow doves and rabbits for the taking… at least that would be my cat’s idea of heaven.
    :-D This is just BEAUTIFUL!

    Yes, this is beautiful, Karen–and I see you’ve got several bids and time to go yet. And I just learned that you have an eBay store. Thinking of you on this rainy So Cal night.
