Chester Cat Stare

6x4 watercolor and ink line (Micron 01 pen) done today on a People magazine card insert to add to my series of cats on cards.  This big fellow is Chester, a domestic shorthaired tuxedo cat, as mean and nasty as the day is long.  He loves other people and children but hates us; even loves to go to the vet clinic where they say he is an angel.  As I've said before he is one of our two most recent rescues from Big Spring Animal Shelter, a kill facility.  His partner in crime is Midget whom I've posted about on this blog as well.  I painted a mixed black of quin burnt orange and ultramarine blue that barely covered lower left black splotch that was on the card originally.  It is almost as if he is looking at the object.   This will be featured in the Facebook 30 Cats in 30 Days or Cool Cats challenge and also on WetCanvas in the All Media Art Events forum.
