The Cat Pack

Kathleen Ford's avatar Kathleen Ford

I have entered 4 portraits of my cats, Stanley, Oliver, Clifford, & Benny. My husband & I are great animal lovers, having shared our home with various cats & dogs through our years together. I have a special fondness for painting the beautiful and soulful faces of cats. I am bewitched by the expressions on their fuzzy faces. They can be so mysterious yet at other times their thoughts are broadcasted so clearly. I am especially intrigued by the eyes. Recognized world wide yet each so disticnctly different. I work in watercolor and torn pieces of hand-made paper from across the world. At times, I add found paper into the mix. Each piece is a close up of their face about 20" x 24" in size. I have framde each one so they are roughly 27 x 31 outside demension.
