In Your Face

Cirque du Kitty
6" x 6"
Oil with a palette knife on board
NFS

The colors of this painting got a little crazy, like circus crazy. But I'm liking how it came out. This cat's eyes reminded me of the poster for the musical Cats-so striking! He has a very regal, wild, tigerlike face, don't you think? I am enjoying doing these really tight close ups of the animal faces. If you have a cat yourself, you have probably seen this in your face at about 5 am checking to see if you are awake. Isn't it time to eat?

Ann, this grabbed my attention immediately in the thumbnail. Bright and perfect with the color choices I might add. It really is amazing the detail you can see if you take the time to look - as you do. The eyes are indeed gorgeous but I tend to see these eyes when the dog is messing with any one of the three cats. That said, I have on cat in particular that begins walking on me, kneading me, putting butt in my face, etc.,...about 3 to 4 a.m. without fail.
