Paintings of Cats on Fences

Today I am sharing a collection of paintings that I have done featuring cats sitting on fences. The originals sell fast and I am busy painting more that are very similar to these. I also have some ideas to create scenes with cats on stairs, cats in a boat and cats in a row eating dinner. My ideas come faster than I can paint, so it’s a good thing I can offer prints.

All of these images are for sale in my Etsy shop as poster prints in two sizes- 8″x10″ and 11″x14″. You can also get them on 5″x7″ cards.

They are also available on a wide selection of home decor and gift items in my Society6 shop. I have placed some links below, but if you need help finding something specific, feel free to contact me.

Joyous Painting

Get lost in the depths of this psychedelic painting .  It has many layers of bright color with swirls, hearts, flowers and geometric shapes.

I began this painting by sponging the base coat with various pastel hues. Once that dried, I added solid circles in different sizes and colors throughout the canvas. The next stage was done over several sessions, where I added details in a free-spirited fashion. I really enjoy the uninhibited style that I have created on this layered non-subjective abstract. As I paint, I don’t know where the painting will end up, I just go with the flow. The repeated hearts, triangles and flowers give the piece a theme,  and the sweeping two tone yellow / white ribbon pulls it all together, leading your eye on a journey through the intricate elements I have painted.

The rectangle pillows are really cool too. I like them better than the shams that S6 offers because they are printed front and back. These are available in four sizes like the square pillows.

Awesome Omelet

This healthy omelet takes about 15 minutes to make and it is a low carb cheesy delicious experience. When you eat a breakfast full of veggies, you can feel good about getting your day off to a good start.

Serves 1-2

Ingredients:

3-4 free range eggs
4 oz. of your favorite cheese
2 chopped button mushrooms
1/4 of a red bell pepper diced
1 cup of spinach
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 whole tomato
olive oil
Dash of Parmesan to garnish and Seasoning to taste – I use Italian seasoning, granulated garlic, onion powder, sea salt and pepper.

You can also add some onion to this, I don’t always feel like cutting up an onion, so I usually omit that unless I have the veggies pre cut from the day before.
While I make a salad I might put a little onion, mushroom, bell pepper, and garlic, in a container so when I go to make this omelet, I just place the ingredients into a sauté pan and I am  halfway there.

Directions:

In a medium frying pan, sauté the mushrooms, bell pepper, and half of the garlic on low heat in a little olive oil with your desired seasonings. Meanwhile scramble the eggs and add some seasoning to them. When the veggies are a little soft add the eggs. Make sure the heat is very low, so the eggs don’t burn while they get a chance to set. This may take about five minutes. Next, I dice up my tomato and place it on a plate, top it with the remaining garlic, drizzle it with olive oil and add a little seasoning.
Once the eggs have congealed, I throw in the cheese and spinach. Using a spatula, I fold it over, raise the heat to medium and then cover it for a few minutes, until the cheese melts and everything becomes brown and bubbly.

If the omelet does not fold over beautifully or you make a mess and egg dribbles all around the pan, that’s perfectly OK. Just let it brown a bit and flip it again, it usually comes together nicely.

When you put the omelet on the plate, add any fallen veggies left in the pan to the top of the omelet and sprinkle a dash of Parmesan. I make this as a single serving for my husband, but it’s quite large and can be shared by two.

 I make this often and it always looks a little different.

You can vary the ingredients however you want, it always tastes amazing.

 

While you eat your omelet,
