About a Cat and a Dog - a Simple Celebration

At first I thought the main character in my painting was Asian with her black, black hair, but then the stripes appeared and the Light Ultramarine Blue of her eyes matched and she became French too! I pictured her with a kitty but my kitty drawing became a dog instead joined by a friend with the same ears, but this time definitely a puddy tat (ie. a cat). It seemed to be some sort of celebration and so a wreath took shape - voila! This painting celebrates love and friendship and would make a nice present for that very reason.

365 Days of Paint + Words

On Nov. 1, 2016 I began a project to make a painting and to write about it and post it on my blog and/or Instagram for 365 days WOW! This painting is no. 4 from that project.

March's Cat

Kathy Crabbe, March’s Cat, 2004, silk dyes on silk, 8x10”. Happy March! The black cat painting above is called March's Cat and was inspired by a wild kitty who adopted me on the last night of a two month long art festival in Laguna Beach. One of my fellow exhibitors was carrying him in her arms after capturing him in a trap on the Sawdust Art Festival grounds. Luis aka 'Pin' grew up to be a shy, slightly clumsy, but still wild black cat that we lost eventually to the coyotes, but I think that's how he would have wanted it.

Silk ties by Kathy Crabbe inspired by Luis the cat

ABOUT LULU IN LAGUNA PAINTINGS LuLu in Laguna Originals are painted with silk dyes and watercolors by artist, Kathy Crabbe. She was inspired by living in mermaidalicious Laguna Beach, California for 8 years where she spent her time frolicking with red-headed mermaids, water-dogs, garden cats and artists as well as exhibiting her art every summer at the Sawdust Art Festival. Kathy's fairies were inspired by spending time in nature amongst wildflowers, ancient oaks and elfin forests in Southern California's inland valleys.
