Art of the Day: Wednesday August 05, 2009

Bella Gatto

- by Sara Field

This week's theme: Cool For Cats

We don't communicate in the same way, yet we understand each other well enough to share our lives with them and they with us. Some of us live with dogs, some with cats. Some of us share our world with horses or rabbits or birds. Many of us live in the company of a delightful mix of some or all of the above and others not mentioned. We delight in their presence, we miss them when they are gone and our lives are immeasurably enriched by their presence. Over the course of the next month or so, EBSQ’s Art Of The Day will take time to showcase art that celebrates those special animals that are a part our lives.

Art: Bella Gatto by Artist Sara Field
"advancing in the pale blue light, he sees her on his fullest night"~~~ he yearns to tell her of his love, while watching from his place above. ~~~ as this infatuation grows, moon asks the stars 'you think she knows?' ~~~ they laugh and twinkle for a while, 'of course she does, see her slight smile?' "

What fun to rip-off a diverse talent such as Tina Marie Ferguson. I had a hard time settling on what media to use as she masters paints & glazes, pencils & photos, piecing, layering, filtering, burnishing and then there is her fiber art too!

My main rip is her 'Bella Luna', but I turned it around and made it an "Orange Crush' which the moon has on the 'gatto' or cat.

I used a piece of salvaged plywood as a base, covered it with vintage yellow wall paper tinted blue. Next, I painted the kitty in acrylics and added Mr. Moon which is a couple of junk cds covered in news print, sealed and painted as well.
