About the Book
But how many cats are worth painting?
Turns out there's at least thirty this March!
Take a look inside to see the cats chosen for this project and the stories by their owners.
Beginning in the summer of 2010, Kat committed herself to a painting-a-day series she called “30 Dogs in 30 Days" which was quickly followed (by popular demand) by "30 Cats in 30 Days" in early spring 2011. This project has proven to be highly popular and has gained a wider audience for her work. The concept is simple: assemble a number of dogs’ (or cats') photos selected from the owners or taken by Kat herself, make a list including the date of the dog to be painted and the dog’s name, and post each painting on a blog daily. This commitment has been a great way for Kat to focus on her style and technique, as well as a way to develop the skill to make quick decisions in composition and color use. She has given demonstrations in public and is happy to explain her philosophy and style to onlookers. This project has been published in a series of books, available on Kat’s Blurb bookstore.
