the lovliest cat

TITLE: Gidamba. mixed media painting

a very good friend asked me to paint this piece in honor of her lovely cat, gidamba.

i was a little concerned, painting a cat, but i absolutely loved capturing him all happy and content beside his favorite tree. it was funny too, because when i first started this painting i imagined gidamba to be human with a cat's head. i thought of him lounging in a hawiian shirt and playing a yukalelee as he lounged beside the tree. 

but once i got to painting, there was no way. gidamba was to be a cat, absolutely!
