Artist and Three Cats, One Biting Hand That Feeds large life-size painting, oil on canvas.
New painting, not entirely finished but close. I’ve been working on it for a couple of months now, large painting with a lot of complexity. I am focused on getting the cat bodies and expressions just right, in motion, having a good time and a loving bundling; me reflective, happy. I want the biting cat to look like it’s doing the bite out of self-involvement and not torture; how cats climb all over each other and their people as if all are litter mates, hair everywhere! I’ve been enjoying it so much, thought you’d like a preview. Cats I know and have loved and more than one who thought nibbling flesh was absolutely acceptable. Love takes and receives great liberties.
