Lèche-Vitrines (Window Shopping),  Acrylics, 11″ x 14″

In French, “lèche-vitrines” (window shopping) can be translated literally by window licking.. which I think is pretty appropriate in this case (hence the French title!).

This is my cat Slinky. I really liked the way the light was contouring his silhouette, enhancing his fluffiness. It’s weird to paint an animal without painting the eyes! Hopefully the personality still came through.

We have a lot of hummingbirds hanging around our balcony. It’s really nice to hear them chirping around. Luckily, most of the time the cats are inside! But once in a while, the just like to taunt them..

It was challenging to paint man made structures like the balcony, the door and the inside. I tried to get away from the safety of the airbrush for the background. It’s a learning curve!

À bientôt!
