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.

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.
