Dog Toy Painting Series (Cat Toy)

I've started a series of still lives featuring my tiny six pound dog Carol's toys. This weeks painting is take two on a cat toy for some friends of mine. Their cat was a barn cat when they got it, they bought this toy to for the cat to sleep with as a sort of surrogate sibling in replacement of the ones it lived with in the barn. As the cat grew up it would carry this toy around by the scruff of the neck as if it was it's kitten. Most of the chewing was done by the cat, though the family dog helped finish off the face.

i'm absolutely loving this series of paintings, dan!

the toy subjects are so weird and beaten down and sad and funny...

it's a very inspiring series....makes me want to paint...

( and i don't think Cat Toy # 1 was so off...i like that it's staring right at the viewer...)

Thanks Derek, that sure means a lot coming from you! I like the first one two, but it looks strange in real life because it was painting on pastel board by mistake. Oops.
