"Warm and Cozy", 11x14, oil on linen, paintings of cats, tabby cats, hearth fire, copper pots
"Warm and Cozy", 11x14, oil on linen panel-Note- This painting is not for sale.
Although I am a cat lover and have 2 pet cats, I have never attempted to paint a cat until today. I decided that this year I will no longer shrink away from painting subjects that scare me because of my inexperience. I am happy with this- my first cat painting, as it conveys the message of warm and coziness that I had been trying to produce.
Back in my home in Pennsylvania, we had three fireplaces, and one was a huge walk-in fireplace with stone hearth and an antique crane and welcome window. I had a copper pot hanging on the crane that invited the feelings of coziness and warmth that I tried to convey in this painting. We could use a fireplace in Florida right now!
Brrrr!!!! It's even frigid here in Florida today! Stay warm and Happy New Year!
