Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Close Encounter is a whimsical painting of a yellow/orange cat with striped tail and legs, noticing a bird in a colorful garden. It is painted on canvas that has been stretched over board and requires framing if you wish to hang it on a wall. It can also be displayed unframed, propped on a shelf against a wall.

While many artists continue to sell prints of their sold originals, I do not make prints or copies of my paintings, ever. Each original is and remains the only one in existence, protecting your investment.
