Saint Lucy Cat Portrait and More Art News

If you’ve attended the Carroll County Farmer’s Market recently, you probably saw me working on a holiday themed portrait of a kitty wearing a candle wreath. (P.S. I am usually painting at my booth, so if you’ve never been to the market, it’s a great place to watch me work!)

I finally finished up Saint Lucy this week. The original painting will be available for sale at the market this weekend, along with prints, cards, and magnets.

“Saint Lucy” is an acrylic painting, on a beveled wood plaque, measuring approximately 6″x8″.

I will be painting “The Page of Swords” for this new project… and a little green alien told me that ALL the Page cards will be represented AS CATS!! (They really ought to do a cat-themed deck ;) #teamcat
