Challenge: Cat Painting

My cat, Cucumber, requested this challenge.  She thinks all paintings should be of her.  She loves being the center of attention, but you don’t have to paint her.

Paint a cat, any cat.  And yes, that includes lions, tigers, bobcats, jaguars and other felines… 


Deadline August 13, 2021, 11:59 pm ET


Cats are complex.  They are mysterious, mischievous, playful, aloof and loving.

Capture their personality in a painting.


















This will be fun to see all the cats!

If you want some reference photos of Cucumber, here you go:


What’s the prize?   
The cutest tiger pencil holder…. and a set of 12 Caran d’Ache Museum Aquarelle pencils.  These are the most awesome pencils!
