Do you need a cuddly gray kitty to make your house feel like a home?  This sweet cat is waiting for you.  One of my latest paintings of another model from the Humane Society of Schuyler County (if you are looking for a live version there is one there looking for you too!).

This was a fun painting that went through many transmutations.  It started out wildly colored.  I thought the cat would not be gray at all even though the model was this color.  But as it progressed my fairies took over and kept changing colors of both the subject and background until this image emerged.  Sometimes that happens - what I start out planning takes a totally different track.  It's part of the fun and always a learning experience.

The original Gray Cat is an acrylic painting on canvas panel, 8 inches by 10 inches and is available for $175.00 to the first adopter offering a good home.  It will be simple for you to frame and no glass is needed.  If you prefer a print in the size of your choice with a variety of substrate options you can find your heart's desire here at Gray Cat Prints in my Amy Reges Print Gallery under Other Animals.

Thanks for visiting!  Can you hear the purrrrr?
