Pallas cat, master of disguise

manulsnow my reference for this painting was a photo taken by a Russian naturalist, and posted on a Russian cat conservation website. Since it’s been so hot here, I liked the idea of painting some snow, and, why not a cat too. The Manul, or Pallas’s cat lives in the most inhospitable places. They are about twice the size of a housecat, but have very low ears, a very dense furry coat, and round pupils in their eyes, like humans and large cats have. This painting, which measures 7″ x 10″ is for sale, only $100 plus postage. All proceeds go to wildlife conservation programs.

World Lion Day

lionlionessFor World Lion Day, I decided to paint a lion and a lioness. These are 5″ x 7″ paintings on Italian watercolor painting. I let my imagination go wild, and have the lioness exiting a cool blue lake. The lion is standing on a hill, surveying his territory. Both of these paintings are for sale, $50.00 each, and shipping is free in the USA

A familiar face

milenaAfter doing several paintings of strangers, I decided it was time to paint someone I knew. It is always a shock to discover how much more difficult it is to render a face so that it looks like who it is supposed to look like. It was a good day’s work, I hope she likes it!
