Kitty Paintings and Book Cover

I've been working on some new paintings the last few days and have now finished them. The first one shown is the next in the Squinty Cat series.

Squinty Cat 3
10" x 10"
Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Mixed-Media Canvas


The next painting I decided to create a coordinating frame.

8" x 8" painting only, 9.5" x 9.5" with wood frame
Acrylic on Canvas Panel

And for this next kitty painting I wanted to try something new. I painted it on 140 lb. watercolor paper. I've never painted with acrylics on this type of surface and have to admit that it was a little different. I would definitely try it again.

All of the kitties above are up for adoption and will be added to my Esty shop soon.

In other news, the Twelve by Twelve group received the cover image of our new book. Lark Publishing is the publishing company for our book and they have been so wonderful to work with. Here is the cover. We all are so very pleased with it. The book is scheduled for a March 2011 release. I can't wait.

  5. How exciting!!!! But wow, you have to wait until March? I imagine it's going to feel like a very long winter. So neat to get a glimpse at the book development at this stage.
