Do you ever dream about something and then almost obsess about it until you just have to just do it to get it out of your head? Well, that was exactly the case when I painted "Queen". 

"Queen" was the first in a series of 3 paintings that I dreamt about painting (below are the three paintings together).  

I knew I wanted a cat to where a crown πŸ‘‘, because that is just so fitting!  After all, look at her posture, look at the way she looks down on you, you scoop her poop for crying out loud πŸ’©πŸ˜‚!  She rules the castle to which you reside. 

The process of putting together paintings like this are just too fun.  I work from images, I'm not an artist who is able to make things up out of thin air, there needs to be a point of realism to my paintings so I went on a hunt for images. The crown is loosely based off an image I saw in a magazine, the details weren't as important to me but getting the symmetry of the crown was; the necklace is loosely based on the necklace that Kay Jewelers Infinity heart necklace.  I picked that necklace because our pets are always in our hearts.  β€οΈ

I hope you enjoyed this little insight into my strange, quirky mind.  πŸ˜œ
