My rocking cats.

FallCat_side2_CocoConnolly_smdesertCat_cocoConnolly_smFocusing on my personal work of late. Looking back through sketchbooks and project notes. I pursued this cat project for a number of years. Inspired originally by a friend holding up her Siamese cat, explaining that this is how you show a cat, if you were to have a cat in a Cat Show. I was really impressed by the cat’s silhouette. All those circular shapes, so graphic. I did some drawings which lead to a 3D concept, rocking cats. I had a builder create the rockers and cat shapes in wood. And then I painted the cats in oils.
