Kitty on a Hot Tin Roof



Well, it's not really a tin roof, but I liked the sound of it. This was on of those drawings that just kept growing. At first I drew the boys looking out the window on a piece of watercolor paper - just intending to draw the kids, but then added the roof, and the tree, and last but not least, the dare-devil kitty and moon. Drawing this sort of thing without thumbnail sketches and planning usually spells disaster for me, but I'm actually happy with how this came out. What luck!

Don't you just LOVE it when this kind of thing happens. The painting is wonderful and the whole idea is just so so so "Paige"

Sweet. I love it when an illustration just "births" itself in front of my very eyes! Love the pose of the kitty.
