Fisherman Cat

I was asked recently to paint a cat-the unusual bit was that it was a 15" high concrete cat and one that Aberdonians would recognise as it adorns Union Bridge- the iconic Kelly’s Cats. Ten artists have been asked to customise each cat to help raise money for the Grampian based charity Diced Cap Charitable Trust. They help improve the health and well being of any deserving persons, resident in or connected with the Grampian Police force area. So as you can see in the pics I decided to go for a nautical theme and dressed my cat in fisherman garb! (The North East of Scotland has a high percentage of Fishing folk). It was fun to be able to paint him and make him in my own style- hopefully he'll raise funds for the auction happening mid November.
