This painting of a cat in a basket was taken off from a Woman’s Day Cover. Painted in 1985 I wanted something to do with my first canvas. I wanted to work and do art and think about what can be possible with paint. This picture had cat hair and other things the posed a challenge. I was new to paint. I wanted to work and see if I could paint the fur on a white cat. I think I did okay for the first canvas painting. I”m proud of this painting. I’ll remember it from when I was still young still looking forward to wanting to learn to paint. I still do but I do not like to draw with paint anymore. I like to make abstracts with color.
