Greek Bistro Kitty

This was the last painting I made for my Spring class. I finished it in June. It's from the Greek Bistro in Kihei on Maui. The restaurant is in a garden-like setting, just off the beach. Several cats hang out in the urns that surround the outdoor patio and this is a painting of one of them. I used a photo from several years ago for this painting, 11x14" in acrylic.

When we were in Maui this year, there were a couple of new kitties at the Bistro. Below is a picture of two of them. I think the one on the left is the same one as in my painting! He looks like Barney, my sister's (The Old Bag) dearly departed cat.








As The Old Bag says...

Orange Kitties
Are the Best!

I just wanted to let you know about a new forum for artists as well as musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers, http://www.PutItOn.com. As an artist I think that the mission is really great. The site gives you a free gigabyte of space for portfolio, there is no commission taken for sales, audio and visual works can been streamed in their entirety, you can create live personal broadcasts for your followers, and anything you write will be translated into 10 languages. So check it out!
