Witches and Cats
Cats and witches for Halloween.
The midnight time when powerful witches, demons and ghosts appear to wreak havoc, misfortune and bad luck upon the living for one hour.
Every Halloween we see these poor little kitties hanging on...and yet.
Imagine a Witches with Kittens benefit on behalf of poor bewitched kitties forced to ride on broomsticks in the Hour of Witches.
What could be spookier than an invitation to witches on the actual Night of Witches?
What possibly could go wrong?

Trickster hangs on for dear life
Faces seem to be a challenge for me. I've run out of patience for neatness I fear. It occured after a few drafts, the combination of contrast grotesque vs beautiful seems to challenge fate. How better to bring out the ultimate Beauty and Beast a'la'female with gnarly old women in tall pointy hats vs beautiful pets.
Many of the images used to decorate Karma Carrier figurines are of ancient cultures and pagan rituals including witch craft. The subject matter these witch acrylic paintings are not so much of the witches as they are of empathy for the fate of the fearsome feline familiars, or cats, who are obliged to hang on for dear life as their mistresses, in selfish disregard, zoom through the moonlit hours on their magical brooms.
Paintings on canvas art works sizes range from 2" x 2" to 16" x 24." I just might churn out a few round ones as well.
So far most images are 8" x 10" but I have two 16" x 24" in the hopper. In fact I just completed two tiny 2"x2" canvases.
I plan on making a good variety of large and small witch and kitty's for display and sale this October 2023.
October is just around the corner. It's February just now as I write but tomorrow is October in old person world.
