|One of the Boys/ oil on board/6" x 6"/ sold|
This little cat is a great example of the use of shapes or "masses" in a painting. The dark areas are connected, as are the mid valued areas and the light areas. From far away, because of these interesting shapes, this painting has an "abstract" interest. This painting also has a variety of edges: soft edges : seen mostly where the fur blends as the color changes: lost edges: as the fur continues into the background and hard edges: most easily seen defining the eye.
