Christmas Wrappings
11.5 x 14
oil on watercolor paper
Getting into the holiday spirit, I started my painting with a cat reference photo and the background was very similar in color to the cat. I liked this idea but wanted to do more with it. This basket full of wrapping papers and some Christmas ornaments was just the subtle theme I was looking for to incorporate with this cute tawny cat. I really like how the floral background adds lots of pattern as do the wrapping papers and the basket, not to mention the striping on the cat! This patterning makes the painting very active, and at the same time helps your eye to rest on the cat and the quiet soft yellow wrapping paper.
This painting is for sale for $175.00, contact me by e-mail for more details and shipping information. Copyright 2012, by the artist, Susan M. Spohn

Phoenix Rooster Rising
15 x 15
Oil on Board

I love the fancy chicken breeds! This is a Phoenix Rooster and they have very long tail feathers that drag behind them, probably not that great of a design for the chicken... but a great visual sight. This rooster is on top of his world enjoying the start of his day with the rising sun. You can also visit my print site to purchase a print of this rooster, simply click the on the animal gallery, then click on the painting  to make a print or card :
