Richeson Small Works 2015

Catnip Madness    Oil on Linen, 12 x 12 inches

I was recently honored to win the ‘Best in Show’ award in Richeson’s 2015 Small Works competition.  Every couple years I do a series of cat paintings, and this is from the most recent.  Years ago I had a black cat named Murphy, who got that wide-eyed crazed look from her new toys and was the inspiration for this work.
