Eva wanted me to paint a Halloween cat about a year ago. I think this simple cat looks pretty funny. I should use my phtalo blue paint (Reeves) more. Though I am not fond of blue colors, this deep and dark shade of blue is great.

I gave away my bamboo cats in the past months, but I very much like the theme. It took me two days to finish this friendly cat, walking in a bamboo forest. I used a glossy red finish on top of the painting. I think it gave the cat a cool look. Pretty hard to photograph though.

I had the idea to paint this cat for a long time, but I haven't painted for many months. I forced myself to make time, so I could paint this cat. Actually I was sick at home last week, so I had time enough. The round shape in the cat is inpired by the round sphere in teh video of the Acid House classic Humanoid by Stakker Humanoid (a.k.a. "Fututre Sound of London" and "Amorphous Androgynous").
