It’s been a VERY busy August with most of it spent painting a LOT of new artwork for Whitby Galleries. At the end of July (beginning of August) I painted a large 12″ x 12″ seaside themed kitty painting. It sold after 4 days so I’ve been hard at work this month painting a couple of new similar sized pieces with the same theme, and ten of my smaller 5″ x 5″ tuxedo cat paintings to replace what has recently sold.
I love how my two large beach cat paintings turned out! Didn’t realize that I hadn’t taken ‘proper’ photos of them until after I posted them so this potato quality one from instagram will have to do. It was partly down to the fact that I was sprinting to the post office to make last collection, and not that I just plain forgot. Honest!
It’s been many years since I painted something so big and I’ve been enjoying it a lot. I think the last large piece was a tulips in glass vase painting I did as a Christmas gift for my mum a few years ago. If you are interested in either of my seaside itty paintings, purchase info can be found at the bottom of the page.
Almost all of the current stock of smaller cat paintings at Whitby Galleries have sold out. There’re are only about 4 left (as well as a hedgehog & squirrel) so, I’ve been frantically working on a set of 10 to replenish stocks in time for the end of the Summer Holidays. Lots of variety in this bunch including, boxes, beaches, and bathroom sinks!
The black and white tuxedo kitties are the best sellers so I’ve been concentrating on those more than other cat colours. I’ve thrown a couple of other kitty colours in there though, like the tabby on the windowsil. Thought I’d try something a little humorous this time too. I painted a small ACEO version of What Canary? recently and loved how it turned out so I’m trying a larger version.
As we all know, Whitby is the home of Dracula, so it only seemed right to paint something a bit medieval-ly and slightly gothic. It’s been a few years since I painted something along these lines and well overdue. May try a few more next time I have an order.
I had planned to take a week off mid August to recharge the old creative juices, and rest my poorly ‘painters’ shoulder. Of course, it had to be put on hold and rescheduled. For the moment, there’s no rest for the wicked as I have two custom pieces that I need to paint first. Here’s hoping my shoulder holds out. Ouch!
