Cats & baskets - a match made in heaven
Yesterday I was trying to set up an etsy shop for the jewelry and ran into so many problems that were so frustrating that I quit and now I try to get back to do more editing and can't access it. I have had the button shop for 10 years you would think setting up the new one would be a piece of cake. Everything has changed so much and nothing seems to work.. It absolutely refuses my new logo,,,
So I decided to give up and paint... One of my favorite things to paint is baskets and the one I have the most trouble with is cats. On most animals and people if I get the eyes right everything is OK.....but with cats I have to get the nose right or it looks like a monkey. I have painted bunnies in baskets, chicks in baskets and flowers in baskets and now I want to paint kittens in baskets.
Since I had wanted to paint some kittens in a basket on a pendant I went net surfing for inspiration and found many kittens in baskets. These two in this painting are a bit scary and look as if they have had too much caffeine. This is a vintage oil painting by Hans Fenger and is available on line for $250/
