Electric Pets

One afternoon after visiting a few local art galleries I experimented with a few tubes of acrylic paint.  The colors mixed into bright, almost fluorescent solutCats Milkions and dried must faster than my oils.  I began with an acrylic layer that lacked texture to which I began crafting this cat that drank his milk too quickly.  This little guy reminds me of the main character in the movie “Puss in Boots.”

After walking my friend’s dog one frigid Sunday afternoon I figured that man’s best friend would be next.  Although I started this piece with the same intention as my cat, I solely used oil to capture his thick coat of hair.
