"Scratch Cat"

Many years ago, I babysat my neighbor's daughter. One day when she came to my house, I had a new cat. I told her she could pet the cat if she wanted to. She was about 3 years old at the time. She looked at me, and the cat very suspiciously, then she asked me, "Is it a "scratch cat"?

I had to laugh.

Last night, I was painting this "scratch cat" ACEO card. I had marked out the inside size of an ACEO and gessoed the watercolor paper in the 3.5X2.5 size. I got the cat painted on, all but his whiskers, then I thought if I added black to the outside edges, his whiskers could droop over the edge. So that's what I did!

He reminds me of Clint Eastwood, saying, "Make my day!"

Thanks for stopping by our WWAO blog. I know you'll enjoy all the art you find here!

Remember, you can find horse art, wildlife art, cow art, and animal paintings, for sale on my website.
