"Curiosity' is named after the famous saying 'Curiosity Killed the Cat.' I always love photos of cats getting ready to pounce. Their looks are so funny and lots of times it includes a body wiggle before takeoff. Hope you like seeing this painting and it brings those memories to mind for you as well.
Also, this painting was painted to enter in the Roanoke Valley SPCA Best in Show exhibit in the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke, VA. The theme of the show is animals. Paintings sold in this show give 50%-100% of their sale price to the Roanoke Valley SPCA. It is a good cause for the animals.
WFS Group In House Contest winner in "The Eyes Have It" contest.
A lifetime resident of Salem, Virginia, (USA) Julie Riffey found her love of art at the age of five. Her talent developed from childhood crayons and pencils to the soft pastel, oil and acrylic paintings she produces today.
She has an Associate Degree in Fine Art from Virginia Western College and in the past, has taught children’s art classes for 7 to 10 year olds. The enjoyment of seeing artistic talent evolve in children is unparalleled. The hope is that she instilled a love of art in those children for a lifetime.
Julie uses a variety of mediums: oil, acrylic, soft chalk pastel and pencil. She paints or draws landscapes, birds, animals, and portraits- all in the realistic style.
