Big Beautiful Bathers
This was a simple and fun exercise in plus size body types. In the media and body positivity movement you often see one type of perfectly hourglass shape plus size woman. There are lots of different types, shapes, and sizes of bodies, male, female, neither, both and otherwise.  This is for all those big, beautiful women who don't fit the mold.

Living Nature
It's been a few years since I last did a Masking Fluid layered piece, but the idea for a floral piece where the leaves fade into the background has been inspiring me for a long time. Finally I did it.  The rainbow colors were painted first, then layers of thinned black (Daniel Smith's Lunar Black) were painted over layers and layers of plants, leaves, and flowers which were blocked out freehand (no pencil) with masking fluid. 

Please let me know what you think of this style, and if you'd like to see more (or less) of it!

Even More Colorful Cats and Colorful Cats for Sale

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 13, 2016, 5:09 PM
Last week I posted 10 paintings of cats. Here are 5 more! These 5 are all in portrait orientation and I had fun playing with different color schemes and compositions! 

Colorful Cats in Portrait 5 by jempavia  Colorful Cats in Portrait 4 by jempavia   Colorful Cats in Portrait 3 by jempavia   Colorful Cats in Portrait 2 by jempavia  Colorful Cats in Portrait 1 by jempavia

Of the 10 I've already sold a number of the originals. If you're interested in one for yourself or a "crazy cat person" in your life, all the ones on this journal are still available. I'm selling them for $150 each (with free standard shipping to anywhere in the US. I'm willing to ship outside the US, but will add the shipping costs). 

They're all on 16x20" 140 lb Arches Natural White watercolor paper. The deckle edge is the original edge. The paper hasn't been ripped or resized.  Here is an untouched, uncropped, unwhite-balanced photo taken outside, in natural light with my Canon DSLR so you can see, in as much realism as possible what you'd be getting.
