This is an 8x10 inch acrylic on wood panel that I just finished. I like to look at everyone's work and I like to paint animals and wildlife as often as I can. C&C welcome. Doc

Great light in this I love the minimal use of color as well. Very nice

:lol: I have to admit- the title simply forced me to look, though I was almost afraid of what I'd find...Dastardly Dan tying kittens to a grist mill?? Yikes! Will Underdog save them in time?!

Forgive me Doc, it's a very nice painting with great expression on the little guy's face. Nice bold colors and abstrac feel to the piece.

Thank you BethAnn. And Lauri, I totally understand. You made me laugh. My wife is one of those crazy cat ladies. We live on a farm and she has a herd of cats. Tying them to a grindstone? Hmmmm...gives me ideas! Thank you. Doc

Hey Doc! Given that I have two white cats (who own me, that is!), this painting tugs on my heart strings. I think you've done a great job with highlights (esp on white) and lights (love the light shining in the fur effect). Really darling painting. I love the green colors (effect) on the (plank), too.

Very nicely done!

Thank you Jody, Varna, and Ginny. They are grown now. The one with his back to us is Pepper. He has an "attitude." The other one, looking at us, is Casper and he is a big pet. Loves people. And he has crossed blue eyes.

Being the 100% dog guy that I am, when I saw this title I had some pretty funny gorey images runnin through the Noggin'....

Now that I've checked it out.....Hahahahaha I LOVE the look of surprise on that Cats face, Like "OH CRAP where did the bottom half of my body go?!?!?!?!"

Great Image!
