“Sunset Kitty”

acrylic on canvas 8×10 in

Nothing like being snowed in to get some painting done! I put the finishing touches on this painting of a kitty basking in the last rays of a fall day. A great way to stay warm and cozy in between bouts of playing in the snow.

Here is the final (or at least close to final- sometimes I can’t decide 🙂

Channeling Motor Cat – Painting in Progress

Update: The original painting has sold. Prints and T-shirts featuring this painting have been added to the gift shop.

About this painting: A motorcycle riding cat?! If you lived in the Takoma Park/DC area in the 90s, you likely caught a glimpse of “Motor Cat,” a cool kitty happily riding on a motorcycle with her human and sporting an adorable little helmet. I’m reliving a fond memory by creating this painting of my cat Mouse riding around Sligo Creek Parkway, channeling Motor Cat. This painting is part of my growing local series.

Update 2023: Motor Cat in the news again and a new Takoma Park restaurant--Motorkat!
