A friend in my art group has the cutest little calico that spends most of her time on the patio. I have painted this little cat several times - and here is the latest. "Patio Calico" has lots of warm color to offset the cool white in this kitten's fur. Pale pink whiskers were the final touches as I completed this little cat's portrait. A sweet painting! This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Pamela

Pamela Gatens focuses on brushwork and layering in order to express her love of color. She finds inspiration in everything from beautiful flowers to a smiling cat. Her passion for art is so great that she feels nothing makes her happier than painting. “My colorful paintings come from the true happiness I feel in front of the easel,” she explains. She paints almost every day and especially loves the quiet solitude of the woods. She moved to West Virginia from Los Angeles and loves her new neighbors: birds and bears.
