My first-ever oil painting was inspired by a photograph I found on Accuweather ascribed to “Johnstownwildfire,” the trade name of professed storm chaser and photographer, Ron Shawley of Johnstown, PA. When I tracked Ron down to get permission to use his photo, he said he was out with his camera during a big snow, came across this forlorn animal and recorded the moment. That feral kitten, now adopted is a huge fluffy tomcat that rules his neighborhood.
"Kitten's First Snow" was painted in oil on canvas with fine brushes using wet-on-wet technique. The fastest I've ever finished a painting, it was done in less than a month but I had to let the paint dry for six more months before applying protective layers of varnish and framing. Although the original has sold, custom prints are available. I think because of the texture of its original canvas substrate, a large canvas wrap with a mirrored edge (with or without a frame) would be eye-catching on any wall. Everyone smiles when they see his face! You could also add a set of 4 matching coasters for entertaining.
