Orson the Cat

This is my donation to the Powder Factory Cat rescue art project. Check out the site for more information, but basically there are a bunch of stray cats living at a cool old munitions factory near Loveland. Some people are collecting the cats and spaying or neutering them, giving them vet care if needed, and trying to adopt them out. This is Orson, who I believe is a kitten. I thought his huge eyes sucking in everything around him were pretty fascinating.

The art show opening will be at my studio building, Loveland Artist Studios on Main, during our 2nd Saturday Event on February 14th from 6pm - 10pm.

If it is like the previous cat rescue, a silent auction will be set up. People can bid on the donated art that night and also on eBay. There will also be merchandise with the different artists' art printed on things like tote bags, coffee mugs, tiles as well as prints to buy of the art (a more budget friendly option if you're interested in the art!)

Please come check it out!

Hi Stephanie,

Nice work! I believe your Dad reads my blog MONEYTHOUGHTS, and I post my art work on Saturdays if you would care to take a look.

I have been asked to participant in a group show on March 6 from 5-8pm at the Cincinnati Artist Group gallery with 4 other artists. If you ever get to downtown Cincinnati, they are located on the 2nd floor on 6th Street (upstairs from the Cincinnati Art Gallery). The CAG does framing and restoration work. Check them out they are nice people.
