We have four cats, so it's no surprise that they have shown up in Jenna's paintings. She works mostly from photographs, and these paintings are all done with acrylic paints.
First, our male Siamese, Sake, sitting in a stack of boxes. I love the shadings of color in his fur:
Next, our female Siamese, Suki, gazing out the window onto our back yard. This is a favorite location for our indoor cats. The vine is a pretty weed that grew up the side of the house and across the screen. I love the calm feeling of this painting:
We currently have a large tabby names Juniper, whom we rescued from the animal shelter when our previous equally-large tabby died. Jenna hasn't painted Juniper yet, but the two tabbies look so similar that this painting of Toulouse works for both! I love the slightly abstract quality of this one:
And now we come to the world's most excellent cat: Q-tip. We rescued her at the same time as Juniper. Q-tip is Jenna's cat, and she is her favorite thing in the whole world. This painting was done for a class assignment. This painting is so fun to look at!
For another class assignment, Jenna piled all our cats on top of each other (in clay form), going from large to small. Her favorite Q-tip is queen of the hill! (This sculpture cracks me up every time I see it!)
