Ghost Cats Original Watercolor Painting


  • Details
    I’ve always had a love for cats and their sneaky ways. As a child I think we had some dozen cats that adopted us and they would pop up in the most unusual places. I began to think they were magical. In this painting I created one cat in a boat but then placed 6 more “ghosts” throughout the painting. People always had fun finding the ghosts. It was only later that I realized with a cat having “9 lives” that I should have put 9 ghosts in the painting.

    I’ve been painting with watercolor for a few decades now. I love layering the colors to make them seem deeper than watercolor normally looks. Each layer of color has to be allowed to dry before another in used, so this method takes a long time. I would say this painting took a couple weeks to complete with a total of about 20 hours.

    This is an original watercolor painting on paper. The colors were layered in many layers in order to get the rich, vibrant hues you see here. I took the photo of many cats to paint from. The fun part was creating a believable ghost out of waves in water and wood grain. It made me laugh to think someone would have to search to find it. A secret joke. It was a fun painting to create and to make colors pop. I could see this one to be easy to decorate around in a home full of blues and browns or in a home with minimal color. I would love to see each of these paintings of mine find a nice home.

    The paper is 22” x 30” unframed, large enough to offset a large room or put over the fireplace or couch.

    This painting is being sold unframed for ease of shipping.
