I don't know what it is about painting cats, but I can't get enough! I'm sure it's those incredible eyes, which reflect their quirky personalities, intelligence, and warm heartedness. My best friend was once a cat. He would lie on my chest with his purring chin on mine, and we would fall asleep that way. I remember thinking at that moment that this was the most blissful I could possibly be. I hope whomever buys this art treasures it as a momento and celebration of all the wonderfullness that is kitty!

"Toasty Tuxedo" Giclée
My giclées are printed on watercolor paper and look and feel much like a real watercolor painting. I can create any size you would like, so if you want something custom just contact me!
*Hand Painted Giclées*
Hand painted Giclées are printed on canvas, and then I hand paint them with museum quality acrylic paint so they become a truly original piece of artwork! The canvas is about 75% covered with acrylic paint.
If you select a hand painted option, it may take up to a month to receive the completed art.
*What is a Giclée?*
"Giclée" is a French term meaning "spraying of ink." This technique produces a quality print with a lush, velvety finish. Giclée prints are commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The giclée printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction and provides incredible detail.
Numerous examples of giclée prints can be found in New York City at the Metropolitan Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Chelsea Galleries. Recent auctions of giclée prints have fetched $10,800 for Annie Leibovitz, $9,600 for Chuck Close, and $23,600 for Rachel Parker (just checking to see if you are reading!!!)
