Project Description

Cat painting of Daisy

This cat painting was done as a gift for Daisy’s owner. Daisy had passed on and her  mother commissioned me to paint Daisy as a surprise Christmas present. The only problem was that she could no longer find any photos of Daisy showing the whole of her. This is why some of Daisy’s body is concealed in the cat painting by pots. This earthenware pots are handmade here in Antigua and the design is specific to this island. The colors of the pots blended in very well with the colors in Daisy’s coat. I also included a lizard, which are prolific here, and I used to watch our own cats stalking them…

Happily it seems I successfully captured Daisy’s character and her owner was delighted with the finished painting.
