Urban Chimera Drawing of a Weenerbog with additions by Jenny Armitage

Urban Chimera (India Ink 19 x 16) $600 framed; $550 unframed

I think of this as a chimera, but given all of the city equipment, I guess he’s a little bit of a cyborg too.

Framed in black wood with gray and black double mat.

Tabby’s Favorite Window

Tabby's Favorite Window, Painting by Jenny Armitage

Tabby's Favorite Window (11 x 14 watercolor on clayboard) Available exclusively Art in the Valley, Corvallis, Oregon $400

I often get asked at art fairs how long it takes to paint one of my paintings. It’s an unanswerable question.  Some paintings take days and even repeated attempts each taking days.   Some paintings just fall out of the brush in minutes.  This painting just fell out of the brush.   And that despite being painted at the State Fair as a demo.

The reference photo is a picture I took of a girl friend’s cat some years ago. I don’t often paint animals, but my gallery is having a group “critters” show and so I browsed my old photos looking for a suitable cat, and this tabby popped up. Now that I’ve done him, I rather like him.  He will be on display at Art in the Valley all this September.
