Siena Cat

Siena Cat
9 x 12 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

I have to admit I'm not really I cat person. I grew up with dogs and am totally a puppy lover, but while in Siena, Italy last month, I saw a cat perched in a window looking down to the street. It was just waiting to be painted. I have never painted a cat before, but having mustered up the courage to try something out of my comfort zone last month with the first car painting I  ever did, I figured I'd give it a go.  Kept trying to forget it was a cat and just looked to simplify shapes, light and dark. I was pretty happy with the results.
