New art - Morning Nap

"Morning Nap" © 2010 Kathleen Coy
10 x 8" Acrylic on Ampersand Gessoboard

I created this painting for an online art show of the Canine Art Guild (CAG), of which I am a member. The theme of the show is "Here Kitty, Kitty..." which is a fun twist on the usual dog art.

I like to take photos while I paint, and put them together to make a short video of the progress. It's always fun to watch how a painting comes together. Enjoy:



Here is a link to the Here Kitty, Kitty show, where you can see Morning Nap and many other fabulous entries from CAG members, and vote for the People's Choice Award. I would appreciate your vote, but of course I want you to vote for your favorite... and if it's mine, I thank you! :-)

I want to thank my friend Jennifer MacNeill-Traylor for the photo reference of her kitty Pumpkin. If you like horse and Halloween art, check out her work!

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

Much love,

You are so talented and have some beautiful works!

I find it so interesting to see the video of your progress. As a painter myself, I can't imagine portraying such raw work to the world, I always find it is not quite right until it is 'done' and to post your paintings in such a vulnerable state - it's amazing! Very inspirational!

Hi Kat,

Love this painting! Pumpkin reminds me of the ginger tabby I once had. His name was London Bridges and he thought he was a dog.
