Queen Shiva

This is my beautiful cat, Shiva. She’s a Burmese, with attitude. She does indeed think that she is the Queen! She loves the sun, and takes every opportunity to soak it up, and this is one of the few times that she liked to be outside. I’m pretty happy with this painting. I haven’t had much luck at painting animals in oil in the past, but maybe I’m finally getting it. The scan doesn’t really do it justice though, it shows the background as shiny and uneven, while I think the scan just picked up on directional brushstrokes. There’s a little too much glare, too. Anyways, hope y’all like it.

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo. In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...
