Study for Center Piece of the show... Kahplah!!!

So I've decided that I'm doing a version of this image of "HRH Bailey" as the whimsical center-piece of my show starting May 1.

On stretched canvas, with a formidable 36x24inches of image space and with bold strokes of my pastel, he should command a first look and hopefully his frivolous yawn will cheer the viewer up (or at least snort milk out their nose). I'm really looking forward to finishing all the works in progress and hearing back from my viewers and critics.

HRH (His Royal Highness) Bailey, was a rescue cat and was only a year old when I made his snarky aquaintance. Persian cats are the "Tribbles" of the cat world, and Bailey is living proof that Siamese are the "Klingons". Kaplah!!

Keep an I on my flickr gallery for new work as I finish it.

  1. I can't take credit for that... and it is a great study. Thanks for stopping by...

  2. Now, there's a view you don't see very often. I suppose only a very few (now deceased) birds see a cat's mouth this way. I'm sure your interpretation will make it full of personality, and won't make anyone think of a bird's last sight!
