Cat on Ladder

“Cat on Ladder” 9×12 Oil on Gessoed Board

Cat on Ladder Oil Painting by Winifred

I see so many beautiful and  often funny photos of cats on FaceBook. Sometimes at play, other times posed elegantly and formally.  Never had I seen one like my reference before. I was delighted when I saw the Karen Margulis photo of her cat on a ladder.  Immediately I knew I wanted to paint it.  I contacted Karen and ask her permission. She said “YES”, she just wanted to see it. This painting represents my interpretation.
