Smokey's Santeria Cat Shrine

And...after having SAID all of that about the Santeria Cat Shrines, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Here's Smokey's completed shrine. You can see that we have ACTUAL plumbing pipes (unUSED, in case you are wondering) as part of the whole water feature theme. I really love the way her fur glows in this painting. She is a VERY silver cat in real life, so I mixed some aluminum powder with the paint when I painted her fur and it really shines! Using the mixed media and wood panels, rather than canvas, really frees me up, expression-wise!

If you also have a cat that you worship, and would like me to construct their very own shrine for you, please contact me!
