Paintings by Lou Belcher (@MaxTheQuiltCat's mom at
Have you seen my new portrait done by Lou Belcher (@MaxTheQuiltCat's mom: Here it is:
We are so excited about this because M said she really captured my personality too in addition to the coloring. Just look at that fine detail! Lou is an artist and a writer living in Florida and we've been Twitter and Blog buddies forever (well, okay - not forever, but at least 5 years now).
Lou started the month of January with a challenge to herself to do a painting a day of a cat. She has now painted 31 kitties since issuing that challenge, and we are so proud of her for doing the challenge and meeting it.
Lou has decided to paint kitties again for February for anyone who wishes to buy the painting. But, she won't be painting at the hectic pace of doing one a day. Cat's only for now tho. She will have a special price of $40 + shipping. These are great 6" x 6" x 1 1/4" canvases, without frames, as the canvas has a wide, approximately 1 1/4" wrap on the sides, top and bottom, allowing her to paint on that 1 1/4" surface too. Thus no frame is needed. M says she really likes these canvasses and has a picture like that painted by D. No frame is needed which cuts down on the expense considerably and looks lovely on the wall.
So, Mariodacat (he he - me) recommends you go over and see Max's bloggy and then visit her art gallery where she has January's portraits posted. Tell your humans to think about getting your portrait painted. You'll probably never see a price like this again as her time and quality of work is worth so much more than what she is charging.
Now head over to MaxTheQuiltCat's Blog then check out her gallery where she has the kitty pictures posted: http://loubelcher.fineartsstudioonline.com If you wish to contact Lou please do so at MaxTheQuiltCat: Maxthequiltcat AT gmail DOT com
