Day 3 – 30 in 30 Challenge… Naptime

140903naptimeSMNaptime

Today is Day 3 of the Leslie Saeta 30 in 30 painting challenge. If you’d like to follow along or even join (it’s not too late to join) you will see the links to the other artists at Leslie Saeta Blog.

Obviously, my theme is cats…. but I’m using this challenge to refine some of my cat-painting techniques. In this one… I was working on the subtle markings of the fur and sleeping.  Not me sleeping, but the cat…

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

    Hey Lou, a friend on Facebook told me about this challenge yesterday. I just posted my first painting here and saw yours as I looked through images. Your cats are so lovely. They hit home with me as we have a older, somewhat lazy black cat named Chaplin. I see him in your work quite frequently. He is the one king in a household that includes two larger dogs. The looks are priceless. 🙂 I look forward to seeing more of your work. Enjoy the day –

    Well, if you ever DO want to work on your sleeping, I’m sure kitties can help you with that! Nice painting – is that a real kitty, or one you dreamed up?
