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.
Tuxie with Sunflowers -I had the pitcher of sunflowers on the chest next to the window in my studio that I used to do a still-life. Over the days it took me to do that painting, Tuxie would jump up and lay next to the pitcher. I took several photos with my phone and sent them to my daughter. She loves getting photos of her beloved kitties. I took a blend of two of those photos to create this painting.
Tuxie's face is challenging to paint because of his asymmetric patterns on his symmetric face. I worked at getting his face to work for quite a while. Tuxie and his brother, Truffle keep me company as I paint.
