Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
I really enjoy painting cats. They have really beautiful eyes and a sense of wildness in their natures I find enduring. I have always loved ponds and streams and find koi fish especially beautiful and intriguing. In this work I hoped to a paint a setting that would be sort of a "kitty haven"!
I was born and raised in the beautiful state of New Mexico. Growing up, I was surrounded by the paintings of both my grandfather and father. Their subjects were inevitably the churches, people, and landscapes of New Mexico. As a little girl, I spent many Saturday afternoons sitting in a chair beside my dad's easel watching him paint. I would happily keep him company, chattering away and rubbing his soft brushes against my cheek. Soon, he would set me up with my own easel, and have loved art ever since.
