Scooter

I have been inspired by Linda's lovely paintings, so I got out my paints recently. I was unsure if I was going to finish it - I've never finished something this big - so I waited until now to share... I will be looking at it for a little while before I decide if it's finish...

Wow, Evelyn! This painting is wonderful! I like how you painted the cats looking at the beautifully detailed scooter :-)

You should definitely do more paintings, you've got talent!

Dear Evelyn,
Graet! Brilliant!! Cats are so cute and I feel your sense of humor.
Cheers, Sadami

Thanks everyone. I appreciate your encouragements. I had fun with the cats :). There are actually 2 more hiding in the shadows but it's very hard to see them unless you are very close.

EVA said...

Fabulous Evelyn!!! And I love the kitty cats admiring it!

You must paint more next year!

Evelyn this is really terrific. How long have you been working on this? It shows such wonderful detail--and the cats are such an interesting touch--play of opposites. Hard mechanics and soft,fluffy life forms. Beautiful.

Evelyn said...

Thanks everyone.

@LW Roth:
Thanks Linda. It's been 2 weeks. I saw that you took your time with your pieces, not rushing so I did my best to do the same. Everytime I was about to walk away from it, I find the next bit to work on... I think that kept me going. Sometimes it felt like I was sculpturing the piece into form bit by bit.

Thanks to you, I am totally addicted!

That's a lovely piece. I really like how you captured the form of the moped.
