Sold - White Cat Surrounded By Fish

"White Cat Surrounded by Fish", is a mixed media on a primed and prepared hardboard. It is from a sketch I did of a favorite orange cat. If you love cats, or even looking for a different white accent for your wall, this could be the piece. I do so many pieces, but find this one to have so much energy in composition and movement. The white cat was actually my large orange cat, very rotund, but I sculpted him down a bit. Love the movement of the black linear which identified the cat's edge on top of a chop I carved of two fish. I am such a fan of repetitious marks, so the red ink chop of fish with the cat was perfect. The final sweep of white suggestion for the bulk of the cat and the red/orange completed my composition. For a smaller piece, I can spend a very long time allowing my eyes to take in every section over and over.
This is a mixed media painting that is a on a hardboard that has been collaged. I also stamped it with a chop I carved years ago, which has an image of two fish. The cat is drawn in black with acrylic and then I decided to paint it white in oil. I added some red/orange under the cat and a bit of transparent yellow ocher above the cat. The image size is 7" x 8". I matted this in an off white and raised the mat off the backing with archival foam board. The cat rests on the same color mat as it is matted. The mat is approximately 3/8" away from the image. The overall mat size measures approximately 17" x 15".
The image makes a wonderful presentation as it is recessed and will not touch the glass.
Enjoy, nancy
