Although I had not planned to put a cat into this piece of art, in a new series of acrylic originals, it happened anyway. Was just getting acquainted with it, but it found a new home for an art lover who also appreciates our felines.
To the new owner of this piece, may you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.
My booth at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas next week will feature images from The Magic Cats Collection ~ cat art full of color and personality… with a touch of human in their soulful eyes. They are already appearing as wall decor, fabric design and soon to be on plates, mugs, figurines and more. Art from my children’s books will also be there ~ this art is appearing on jigsaw puzzles, resulting from last year’s show. We’ll see what happens this time!

MODELS ~ ACTORS ~ SINGERS ~ COMEDIANS ~ REPORTERS ~ REALITY STARS ~ TV COOKS ~ ACROBATS ~ MAGICIANS ~ AND MORE!
Images taken from my cat art galleries in a collection of role playing felines, eventually for a gift book. Currently available in singles as prints.
Three samples here!
Whether it’s cats or dogs, our best friends play an important role in our lives. Laura Seeley’s POETRY IN PAINT collection is a celebration of these precious critters. With a touch of fantasy and fun. But look closely. Nestled in the landscape of each lyrical painting is a verse. Award-winning author and illustrator of children’s books, Laura the painter suggests that “life’s experience” is one big story, a story filled with many smaller stories. Goals, dreams, the paths we take, the choices we make, strategy, luck, love… Laura sees what wonderful creations each and every animal is. As she looks into their often inquisitive eyes, she longs to know how they perceive the world they share with us. And she wonders. Perhaps how we treat and respect these beautiful and mysterious creatures are reflections of ourselves.
As a new resident of Dana Point, I am constantly stimulated by the scenery offered by this coastal town. As an artist and animal lover, I usually celebrate our beloved cats and dogs in paintings and drawings. This time, it’s these gentle giants of the sea I highlight, with color, composition and much happiness. While my subjects usually speak through human-like eyes and facial expression, in this case I felt that their tails would be more telling. For whale watchers, these wondrous creatures have a gift to share. When one emerges from the depths and dark blue waves, it can happen with a sudden “BOO!” effect, creating quite an adrenaline rush for its human audience. But the ultimate visual treat… is its tail. Outstanding in aesthetics aside, one fleeting glimpse often leaves viewers with a sense of awe, victory, respect… even euphoria. I hope you will enjoy “Splash Dance” as much as I enjoyed creating it.
Paintings of cats and dogs and whimsical stuff along with my kids’ books will be in my booth at the fabulous Art-A-Fair in Laguna Beach from late June to early September.
If you’re local, swing by Laura Seeley Studio & Best Friends Art Gallery in Dana Point, to pick up a free season pass for two.
I look forward to seeing you there and at the fair!
