This week I started a new series of fantasy art paintings. I just listed the first one today, which is of a Maine Coon cat with monarch butterfly wings. Being the language geek that I am, I figured if he has monarch butterfly wings (and being a large and regal cat) he must be the reigning monarch, the king of the cat fairies. Having that idea, I had to paint him wearing a golden crown. Here he is, sitting proudly overlooking his cat fairy kingdom:

Here is a detail view of his face and his richly decorated crown:
This painting is entered in a contest on ebay, called Fairy Fun.
