Art: Lilly by Artist Kiki Michalek
I painted a pet portrait of a black cat on a T-shirt some years ago. Her name was Lilly and the customer left the background up to me. I painted a single lilly behind the cat. I always liked the color combination and finally put the same idea on canvas with a full background. I used an airbrush both freehand and with hand cut stencils to put in the base colors. I then went over the entire painting with a paintbrush, using the acrylic paint as a wash the add more texture. I would like to point out that while it makes a pretty picture, lillies are lethal to cats and do not make a good combination in real life. So, enjoy the painting and remember to  keep the flowers away from the furballs.
