Lightfoot Cat’s in a Painted Alcove – Tromp L’oeil

My friend got these cat art pieces, made by artist Vergie Lightfoot, for Christmas.  My job was to paint her little alcove to look like the cats are in a window seat, complete with pillow to match her living room.  It started as a garden scene with birds, bees, fountain and walkway but it was just too much.  We decided the window view needed to be simpler with the cats being the focus.  I’m very happy with the results.  The hard part was painting that window frame straight as it was about 3 1/2 feet high and at that size my tape tends to warp. 

I’ll be there again in a couple of weeks for a party, and I’m so looking forward to hearing what people say about my window.  Always fun.
