Spending time with her bees and collecting their honey was such a treat for this kitty!
Society6 is having a big sale on all items! Clicking on the images will take you to the coordinating section of my shop. 40% off all wall art is pretty huge! There are so many items and options. I have over 350 images on items for holidays, or for every day. Mini prints and mini framed prints make excellent gifts!
My cats don’t eat ‘people’ food, and even though I paint a lot of cats drinking coffee, tea, boba, etc., that’s more about me and my obsession with coffee. I can sit down and enjoy a meal without kitties staring me down, willing me to feed them what delicious food is in front of me…unless it’s yogurt. Yogurt or skyr. My cats (specifically Willow) go nuts over these things and I’m not 100% sure why. If yogurt is left unattended for a even a second, Willow is there stealing a lick. So that is the inspiration for the latest piece of digital art I created for this week. The Yogurt Thief.
One of my favorite photos of my Puddy cat before he passed was “Sleeping Puddy, Paper Cranes.” I have painted versions of it a couple times and decided to do a digital version. This time it’s Wally Bear going on an adventure!
I drew out these cafetière images on the iPad last year and never did anything with them, so I decided to add more colors for a print. As a coffee-lover, I’d actually hang this in my own kitchen. =)
Of course, I can’t not do a cat with coffee, so here’s a ginger kitty drawn after my Rosebud, with some glasses and coffee!
I have a few other illustrations in the works for this week of “not painting” with traditional paints. It’s actually been rather difficult because I have ideas for paintings, but for now those just get scribbled into a sketchbook for later. Are there any themes you’d like to see me draw for this digital week? Let me know in the comments below!
I’ve just added lots of my artwork to many products in my Society6 shop! I realized I didn’t have a lot of my reproduction-aka ‘catified’ versions of old artworks available there, so I took 5 hours and edited and uploaded some of them. There’s still a LOT of paintings that I haven’t made available, so I will be adding more here and there. Take a look at the images below to see the new prints in shop! Click HERE to go to my shop.
This is one of my favorite paintings to date that I have painted. A reproduction of Henry VIII as a cat! This is the first time he is available on items, and he’ll only be available in my Society6 shop. Below you can see a variation of items he is available on. Clicking the above image will take you to the page for an art print.
To honor today, I’ll share some of my past paintings (all available as prints and other items in my Society6 shop) that I have painted of cats and books!
