8 Venice Cat

Diane Mannion, Venice Cat, 8x10" o/c

      Number 8 in the 30/30 Challenge.  Begonias, to keep the flower theme going, and my Venice cat.  Have always wanted to paint it.  Found in Venice, Florida and was made in Venice, California by Gary Steinborn.  This cat usually lives in an antique bird cage as the cat that ate the canary.
      Now that I've seen this one posted, I see bits here and there I want to change, but at least it's a start.  For instance, I want to bring some of the cool lights under the cat into the foreground.  And if I just consider these 8x10"s starts, or sketches... takes a little pressure off for the challenge.

Just read your plan about 8x10 and flowers. You are off to such a strong start!

Thank you, Anne. Right now, I'm thinking... what was I thinking, 8x10"?
