March 26 - Canadian Cat

"Yes, I'm Warm, Thank You" I was offered this delightful image of a Canadian cat, cozy in mohair, and asked permission to paint him/her.  I'd not seen such a nice image of a cat all fluffed up in something so cozy, and just felt I had to paint it.  The source material for this was also so good, I changed hardly anything--perhaps the expression a bit, making the cat a teenager.  When I have to do details like this, I prefer my acrylics, as the layering of colors allows for infinite details and corrections.  This is a 5 x 7 acrylic on gallery wrap; it sold the minute I sent it out to my daily paintings email list.
