Watercolor of a Cat: Hypnotist

watercolor of a black tuxedo cat

Hypnotist, 11 x 4 watercolor on paper


In the last post, I included links to the San Diego Artwalk, and the Sierra Madre Art Fair, where I’ll be showing my wares, including this little guy, my studio assistant (above) next week. I received emails from folks that live far away, wishing they could stroll the festivals, munch kettle corn, listen to live music and peruse art, up close.

I can’t send the art festival digitally, but I can bring you a pre-art-festival sale! From Thursday, April 18th to Thursday April 25th, I’m offering free shipping on all domestic art sales. (If you’re International, email me, and I’ll do some research & number crunching.) It’ll be like strolling the show – digitally – and taking art home with no mailing costs, because I’ll pay for packing & shipping.  It’s a little sprinkle of Thank You for all the support, comments, enthusiasm and encouragement you good people shower me every week. 🙂

So, here’s how it’ll work. Browse & shop my Etsy Store. I’ve got a lot of work posted, with more to come in the next day or two. I’m adding photos of the work in frames, which should help give a sense of scale. If you’re interested in a particular piece, and it’s not on Etsy, just send me an email with the art title, and ask for pricing and photos of the frame directly.

The entire shop [including printmaking] is set up for free shipping (domestically) till Thursday April 25th. Just insert this code at check out: SPRINGTIME4ME and the shipping costs will disappear!

Art Quote
After 2 yrs of circulation in major exhibits, William McGregor Paxton’s painting Sylvia was purchased by an American collector in 1910. (He was 39.) His commissions & exhibitions continued at a vigorous pace & by 1935 he had earned more prizes than any other American artist. In NYC, however, where the genteel subjects of the Boston School were less revered, Paxton’s solo shows had mixed reviews. Paxton & his peers were beginning to be eclipsed by the shift to modernist painting. ~E. Lee

    @Cindy, Thanks for the compliment. He’s a great little muse, and a constant companion in the studio. 🙂

    @Barbara, Thanks, dearie. I hope you’re feeling better? I’ve seen pics of your furries on your blog, and I’d be very glad to pet them. 🙂

    Love the painting. Beautiful hypnotist. I’ve got a couple of those.

    My Siamese comes running crying if she hasn’t seen me for an hour or so, begging to be patted.
