Cat(s) of the Month ~ September 2012The Society of Feline Artists, or S.O.F.A for short, was founded in September 1994. They have the aim of promoting the work of the best cat artists, whether established or unknown….and what an amazing collection of feline portraits they have in store on their website!
We’ve been looking at these painting for many years (haven’t we Norm?) and find them fascinating. I’m including a selection of our favourites here. We especially like the one that’s a dead ringer for Norman himself! We’d like to thank Peter (Gordon and the all the cats too!) for letting us post them here.
Peters work is described on his own website …”Working in designer gouache and pastels, mostly from photographs, Peter paints his cats with colourful, intricate and detailed backgrounds”. To us, Peter seems to capture the real spirit of these cats, as well as making the works highly decorative. Wonderful!
