Okay, the cats are actually in rectangles, but I like the way ‘cats in squares’ sounds better.
This was a digitally created piece I did a few years ago which I posted in my Cat Attack store on Society6. Cat Attack was created so when cat ladies and other fans of cats came across my work, they wouldn’t have to sift through paintings of abstracts, suns, oceans and dog portraits to see more cat content.
This humorous illustration gets lots of positive comments. It’s fun and playful and the cats appear to be teasing the viewer in a way that cat lovers adore.
My wonderful cousin asked me if this digital creation was made up of separate little paintings and I immediately decided that it should be. So I got started the next day.
I painted four little canvases with many, many layers of paint for the bases. These are 5″ X 7″ each. When they are hung together in a square, spaced two inches apart, the total design area will be 14″ X 14″.
Next step was to sketch out my adorable little friends.
And paint them.
Aren’t they funny?
This set was a gift for cousin Carrie. I made two more sets; one the same size as this and a larger version on 8″ X 10″ canvases. They are available in my Etsy Shop:
