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:

My name is Greta Milan, I sign my art work gretzky... It's just a nick name. I am a visual artist, I paint with acrylics on canvas, I also enjoy creating digital art and mixing the two mediums. My interests include custom pet portraits, tropical landscapes and vibrant colorful non-subjective abstract paintings and patterns. I am also a artist of good healthy food. I am mostly vegan. I love cooking and I believe that healthy eating does not mean deprivation and sacrifice. I have found ways to make all of my favorites without using hydrogenated oils, processed sugars, preservatives, artificial colors, flavors, etc. In my home we eat vegan pizza, burgers, fries and chocolate shakes, in a healthy version of comfort food. I will be blogging all of my recipes here and I will discuss tips on healthy living for the mind, body and soul.
