Patches

Giclée of Original Watercolor
SIZE: 8" x 10" • Unframed • RETAIL: $25
EDITION: 100 Signed and Numbered


This little calico was my ever present gardening buddy for many years. She was thoroughly cat preferring to be outdoors right up to her last days. Our long Minnesota winters tested her patience. Forced by heavy snows to stay indoors, she begged for a sniff of the outdoors as though she could tell just how long winter would stay. I contrasted a loose, wet background with a crisp foreground to make her stand out. If you would like to give her a home, please contact me in the comments below or on my web site.

This giclée is full size like the original painting. Giclées are considered museum quality fine art prints. Unlike large, lithographic print runs, giclées are printed just a few at a time with dye-based, archival quality inks on acid-free, archival watercolor papers. Each print is approved, hand-signed and numbered by the artist. Giclée prints should be displayed in a dry location out of direct sunlight. Proper care will add to their longevity and to enjoyment of them for years to come.

  1. I know exactly what this cat was feeling when you made that "air" comment. Sometimes you just hafta have some real air, none of that house stuff! Love this painting. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thanks for comment! Patches would stand on hind legs, nose pressed against the glass, until I opened the door for her so she could take in all the mysterious wintery scents outside.
