Cats and flowers are two of my favorite things. This is one of several paintings I have done that combine flowers with a cat. It’s always a challenge because, while the flowers will sit still, cats won’t sit for long. My technique is to paint the flowers from life and make up a cat to go along with them. The fun thing about this painting is that it is a formal still life floral but, since it has a cat in it, it must have cat toys! Siamese cat with butterfly design vase, blue irises, white lilies, blue delphiniums, purple lilacs, and pink and white roses. Canvas size is 30 x 15 x .7. Framed size is 20.5 x 35.5 x 1.75 inches.
