"Sweet Kitty 2"

Yesterday, Day 1 at the Sourwood Festival in Black Mountain, I did a pencil drawing of a darling tabby kitten.  Today I took my oil paints with me, used the same reference photo, and painted  a color version of the same tabby.

Painting on site did seem to draw more people to our booth, but sadly, there were no sales.   I was able to wander around the show some this afternoon, and had a chance to speak to several of the other artists   It seemed that they were all in the same predicament... lots of lookers but no buyers.

I still have some final refining to do on "Sweet Kitty 2" but he is nearly completed.

  1. I love your Sweet Kitty art. Having been owned by a cat in the past, I recognize this expression. Beautiful work. I agree, time well spent.
