Hot on the heels of last month’s selection of Summery and nautical offerings comes yet more sailor cat illustrations! My last set of kitty paintings has almost completely sold out at Whitby. I’ve spent the last few weeks frantically painting more so that they could be in store for the school Summer holidays.
The sailor’s from the last order were the first paintings to find new homes. I think there were only 2 last time so I’ve made sure to add a few more this month. Fingers crossed they are just as popular. Even the one with the budget sailor wearing a newspaper hat!
Most of the paintings this month take place at the beach. It is Summer after all. If the cats aren’t basking in the sun, or admiring the views, they’re enjoying a cool beverage at the bar. One kitty in particular is partial to some gin! Not fond of it myself. Much prefer a rum & coke!
Still keeping to a Summery theme, the last couple of painting in this order feature birds. I’ve always loved birds and you don’t often see them around cats. I think that’s probably why I love this combination so much. After ravens, the little garden birds are my favourite. I couldn’t paint them all so I had to settle on a blue tit, and some bullfinches, to accompany the cats!
This month there were a couple of surprise additions to the order. Some hanging heart decorations. A new product the staff at Whitby Galleries wanted to try after seeing a couple I previously painted for my Folksy store. I wasn’t sure what to paint on these at first but, since I was already painting them, I figured sailors were a good choice.
Hopefully the hearts will do well. One of the lovely ladies at the gallery had the purr-fect idea for Christmas decs, so fingers crossed! I hope you all also like my new kitty paintings. I’ve really enjoyed painting all the Summery themes these past few months. No rest for me yet though as I’m now painting 2 of my larger 12 x 12″ paintings which are also destined for Whitby!
