I finished this cat in time for the artist studio tour last weekend! It's 5" in diameter and was painted with acrylics on a sassafras wood slice. It's interesting to me to see how it began as an unidentified creature and with a very different color scheme.
I never have a plan for my art. I just start and see where it takes me. Painting is still relatively new to me and I am trying to get a feel for painting in layers, while at the same time, trying not to stress about what feels like wasting paint!
