Kitten for Humane Society- Watercolor

Another painting for my daughters Humane Society fund raiser.  The dog, this kitten and a custom painting or drawing, all will be in a silent auction for a Kentucky Humane Society Walk in the Park.  Although I have a little more to do on the eyes and hair, I thought that I would go ahead and post it before taking it to the auction.  It is a 7″x7″ all watercolor on 140lb cold press paper.  Have a great weekend!

  1. I can’t imagine what else you could possibly have to do to this painting, Ryan. It’s gorgeous just as it is!! This painting makes me miss my cats back home; I have two. Lovely work as always, Ryan!! I love the cause as well!

    • Thank you Debbie,
      We had a cat and Shitzu dog, but both passed away a few years ago and we’ve decided that they take to much time and effort to get another one. Thanks!

    • Thank you Beth,
      I hope it raises funds for the humane society, there’s got to be a cat lover out there that would be willing to pay something for it… I hope!

    • I was fine with Supper! Dinner! or anything else to do with eating, I’m all about good food, but I knew what you meant. Thank you

  5. Ryan,
    Your painting of the cat is stunning, cute and warm! I just know that the cause your supporting will overflow with donations! 🙂

    • Thank you,
      My daughter works hard against the mistreatment of all animals, and hopefully this will raise some money for the humane Society cause.

  6. Meow! I can’t imagine why anyone wouldn’t want to adopt a kitty after seeing this painting. Good luck to your daughter’s fund raising event. I hope they are very successful.

    • They you Carol,
      I think they’ll do fine, the midwest (Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois) seem to admire art, but don’t put much money towards it. Even if the art took an artist 20 hours to paint, they still only want to pay $25.00 for it. But want you to pay them a hundred dollars an hour to fix your car.

  7. Wow, what an expression! I know this one very well, my kitty wears it often. You resolved it so well, I am envious. I am sure there will be a bidding fight over it, be sure to let us know.

    • Going, Going Gone! I hope so! I told her that art in the midwest is funny, most admire it, but doesn’t want to spend much on art, even if it’s original art, but hopefully they’ll make some off of them. Thanks!

  8. I would BID and both of them if I was there, Ryan!…and hope that I would come home with at least one of them. Good cause and great work!

    • Thank you Leslie,
      My daughter loves animals, especially horses, that’s why she is studying animal Science and Equestrian Therapy.

    • Thank you Amber,
      I think this one sold for $30 at the humane society auction. I never got a final price because I was to busy with the booth to watch.

    • Thank you, I have a lot of soul but not a lot of patients. I get bored quick!

    I’m so super duper excited to announce that this kitty painting came home to live with me!!! yay!!! And I love it! So much. I still can’t believe I won one of your paintings at the silent auction. It made my week!

    You and I talked that day Ryan. I’m the groomer who was handing out blueberry facial coupons. 🙂 It was great to meet you.

    I really wish you had an official website, or an Etsy shop, where we could browse your stuff for sale and make purchases. Maybe something to think about for the future. 🙂

    Warm regards,
    Lea Ann

    • Wow! Anyone that uses the words Super Duper right away tells me that I like this person. I remember you and you were extremely sweet. That’s one thing that I love about what I do, I was extremely shy and never spoke to anyone through most of my younger years, and now it’s my favorite thing about art is meeting and talking to wonderful people like yourself.
      I had an Etsy account at one time but things got buried so quick that it was hard to keep on the main pages. I will be adding a purchase page to this blog site soon and possibly creating a more professional site in the future. Thanks for your bids and kind comments!

    I think that you have finished this one my friend as surely all the tweaking in the world couldn’t make this wondrously fine painting any better… An excellent piece of work
