If you’re a serious cat lover, cat art will be right up your alley. From primitive designs to funny photos, let cat art bring your favorite feline to life in your home. Let me show you how.
• Primitive Designs
Country decor calls for simplicity and primitive designs offer an uncomplicated expression of the feline form to complement your rustic spaces. Sitting, standing or in a reclining position, these simple drawings or paintings are more about color than they are about detail. Even if you’re not a gifted artist, you can still try your hand at creating a piece of primitive cat art to adorn your walls.
• Pop Art
Pop art is a perfect art form for contemporary spaces. You can create your own feline pop art with a photo of your cat and free photo editor software like Photoscape or Picasa. Experiment with multiples of the same picture in different hues as a creative addition to your room decor with colors that pop. Or get fancy by adding multiple colors to the same cat photo.
• Painted Portraits
Commissioning a painted portrait of your beloved cat is natural – after all, they’re part of the family. Whether you like watercolor, oils or acrylics, a painted portrait can immortalize your furry friend on canvas or paper. And you don’t have to spend a fortune for a custom piece of artwork. Just find a local community college and contact the art department to locate art students who would be more than willing to paint your kitty for a fair price.
• Funny Photos
If you want artwork that is fun to look at, dress your cat or pose them in unusual surroundings to create art on the lighter side. Kittens in a teacup are adorable; unusual napping positions can be irresistible. Search the web for photo ideas and have fun taking candid shots until you get one that makes you smile. Then mat and frame your masterpiece to decorate your space with a picture you’ll enjoy for years to come.
Whimsical cartoon art is a treasure when a cat is the subject. Don’t settle for store-bought cartoon art. Look to sites like Fine Art America or Etsy for emerging artists with fresh and new takes on cat cartoons. You’re sure to find a piece that you’ll fall in love with.
Whatever your style, you can bring cat art into your home as a way to adorn your walls and celebrate the feline form.
