This is an oil painting I created for the Purrfect Pals cat rescue. It was sold at the Black Cat Ball dinner auction a few years ago. I'm introducing it into Verksted Gallery as a limited framed edition. The frame is handmade with hand painted details. The painting is a Giclee print on Velvet fine art archival paper.
With each painting I write a story to share the thoughts and world of each character. This is my idea of a Black Cat going to a costume ball. Notice the fish confetti. Here is the story:
"It was time for the annual “Black Cat Ball”. She bought a new pink gown to wear this year to go with the heart necklace she inherited from her mother. A gold fish mask with a big pink feather hides her identity from others. The proceeds always go to a great cause which is to provide homes for the less fortunate. The Ball was a chance to dine, socialize and show off her new dress but most importantly her new fish fan."
