"Best Friends", 8x8, oil on panel, paintings of cats, black cats, tabby cats, impressionist cats

"Best Friends", 8x8, oil on panel

I have had black cats as pets for the past 20 years and I've loved them and they are incredibly intelligent. I currently have two in the house, yet I've been afraid to try to paint them. Tonight I decided to give it a shot and "Best Friends" is the result.

I actually love the contrast of the black cat against the tabby- it's that push and pull of warm and cool, dark and light that somehow pulls it all together. I hope that you like it, too.

By the way, I saw CATS on Broadway three separate times, so one of these days I am going to sing "Memories" for you!
