Today’s Project – Maine Coon Cat

I took a quick break from the equine art to try the “pastel on black” technique on a cat. I haven’t done any cat art in awhile; perhaps attempting to avoid my Hall of Shame. Or, maybe because I’ve discovered that I can actually sell my equine art! YAY!

Anyway, I always liked Maine Coons. I had a few friends who bred them and enjoyed watching their kittens grow into these enormous, gentle creatures. Many of them have the most laid-back, affable personalities.

This pastel painting is on eBay.


About Nancy J. Bailey

Artist, author, bad karaoke singer. Woodsy ragamuffin. Mom of a horse named Clifford who plays fetch and paints with watercolors. He visits libraries and schools with me, to promote literacy and making the world a better place. Yes, he is house trained, no, he doesn't live in my house! I have written three books about Clifford. But my newest book, THE NORTH SIDE OF DOWN, is co-written by my awesome sister Amanda, who has Down syndrome. Her unexpected one-liner wisecracks can always make me laugh. If you make me laugh, you've made my day!
