I paint with acrylics on watercolor paper; using the process of layering the paint and scratching back to reveal unique colors and textures in my paintings.
Sunflower Still Life with Black Cat is a still life where I used the fish pitcher that my twin sister gave me It's one of her many unique thrift store finds. She thoughtfully passed it on to me as I like to paint both pitchers and fish. The pitcher usually stays out in the screened in back porch; I brought it in and filled with sunflowers to paint. I decided to add a black cat to the painting to continue the still lifes with cats series. I'm pleased with the cat, he's standing for a change which I think works in this painting and it's also bit humorous that he's right next to the fish. I enjoy painting sunflowers, , as they radiate warmth and happiness.
