For the first time in my painting group, I did something else than cats. That was quite a revolution to everybody.

I saw a photo montage combining a cat head and a pingouin body, so I choose it

Here of course it's selfspeaking !

All paintings are in acryl and on canvas.

I think I don't have to specify what the paintings represent ! All of them I did in Art School. Of course there were no cat models. There were Still Lives or models and to the big sorrow of my teachers I always added a cat. Finally they gave up and everybody started to call me "Mme Chat" which means Mrs. Cat (some people think that chat (english) suits me better). Since I really started I have only used pastel and acrylic.

And here is the link to all paintings I had published before :

    I wish animals and humans had the same colours in real life...that would be so nice...so nicer than the grey walls and faces...
    that's very good Gattina

    Hallo Gattina
    Habe mich sehr über deinen Besuch bei mir gefreut. Um all deine Blogs studieren zu können, müsste man ebenfalls schon Rentner sein *g* Jetzt hab ich mal hier geschrieben, hoffentlich findest du meinen Kommentar auch :-)
    Du malst ja wundervolle Bilder, sehr schön. Mein Mann malt auch, aber leider viel zu selten, schade! Demnächst werde ich ein paar von seinen Bildern in meinem Blog zeigen.
    Also besuch mich mal wieder, du brauchst auch gar nichts in meinem Garten zu arbeiten, versprochen
    Sigrun kenne ich übrigens persönlich, wir haben uns schon ein paarmal getroffen. Sie ist eine ganze Nette und lustig obendrein!

    Hi Gattina

    I can see your love for cats in your paintings. I'm a cat lover, as you know, and if I was a painter, I would be painting cats! But your paintings are beautiful - the colours are so rich. Thank you for showing what you do.

    Do you sell your paintings?

    Chaotic Mom said...

    Wow, you are amazing. I would be interested in buying a copy of the Catguin. I'm not kidding. Can you get a copy made somewhere?
