So there was this cat positioning itself just above the manhole near Osaka Castle in Osaka. People were taking her(?) picture. I wanted to do something different so I painted her (haha)
Well, I have been away forever! Works have been flowing in so no complains 🙂 It has become a tradition that I send postcards to my friends from watercolor class once in a while. So on the occasion of the new year, I painted a bunch of postcards with cats to them. I love cats. Not as much as dogs but I love them too. This is not the year of the cat (but the year of the goat for us Asian) but well… who can resist cute cats!
It is not really a still life painting but this just fits my previous still life theme so yey. My watercolor classmates and I kind of have a tradition to paint postcards to our classmates like once every 2 or 3 months. One of my classmates is a very smart university professor and she travels around the globe and be a visiting professor here and there. Her name in Thai is Nok which means bird in English. So the latest postcard I painted for her was this one. Very simple but not at all easy. I don’t really like the background color. Though I like chubby little colorful birds and their little red flags (*pats self for coming up with this idea heh*). But my friend loves it! I guess this matters the most.
I would like to think I get better at this… yes? no? But I had fun–that is for sure. Heh
So they all say third time’s a charm! I presented to you the chubby little labrador and his oh-so-huge fish 🙂 I think the fish swims upside down? No?
My FB’s friend’s dog, Trina, died at the beginning of 2014. She was such a peaceful presence in their life. I wish I could convey that sweet side of her as much as I can in this picture. R.I.P. Trina. You have been loved.
