THE QUEEN, 5X7, OIL SOLD

I spend a lot of time in my favorite framer's shop.  Being a very casual store, there are two cats that live in the shop during the week.




 They are equally beautiful, but on the day I had my camera along, only one was willing to pose.  I don't know what her/his name is, but, I think she/he looks very "queenly" in her/his pose, thus the name.

Bon jour!

SOLD

She does have a very regal way of holding herself, and you did a great painting. The fur looks really fluffy!
Sounds great with the trip to Paris/London , two wonderful cities.

Love the title Queen. It does seem so fitting to this cat and pose. Lovely light captured on her fur. You're framer will want to buy it!

This cat really does seem to have a regal attitude. You have really caught her personality. Her fur looks really fluffy with such simple strokes.
I am so jealous! London and Paris. Lucky you!

"A dog thinks: Hey, these people I live with feed me, love me, provide me with a nice warm, dry house, pet me, and take good care of me… They must be Gods! A cat thinks: Hey, these people I live with feed me, love me, provide me with a nice warm, dry house, pet me, and take good care of me… I must be a God!"
I'm sure that's what she is thinking.
Have a great vacation, Carol.

Wonderful painting of "Queen". I agree she thinks she is- maybe Queen of the frame shop at least. Lucky you to get to go to Paris and London:) Look forward to seeing lots of fun photos and paintings!

Liana Yarckin said...

LOVE it! Does she ever look like a Queen! You captured the attitude perfectly!

Jane Hunt said...

Very "queenly" indeed - gorgeous.

The trip sounds wonderful - I'm from right outside London and don't get to go home so I'm jealous! Look forward to the paintings that result from your travels :)

How lovely and loose you have painted her, like all the colours in her fur, beautifully done Carol.

You really captured this cat's personality - and fur! Have a great trip!
