Day 30 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Whimsy

The honor of being the painting of the 30th day of the 30-day challenge goes to Whimsy. He's a watercolor and pen and ink cartoon cat who is a bit shy and only shows half of his face at a time. He is painted on 300 pound watercolor paper and in real life he is 5 " by 7"....

He's here to thank all of you for your support and encouragement throughout the month.  I loved reading your comments.

Tomorrow... watch for the poster of all 30 cats.  Last time I made one, so decided that whenever I make it through one of these challenges, I'll create a poster as reinforcement.

Again, I appreciate your support.... Have a great day.

hugs, HH (Lou)

Day 29 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Abstract Cat 6

For Day 29, HH has painted another Abstract Cat. This one is #6....He can either be combined with the others or he can hang alone.  His is 6" by 6" on 140 pound watercolor paper. HH used acrylic glazes to paint his vibrant coat.

Bugsy and I want to be colorful like that for a day or two... not forever mind you... just for a couple of days to try it out.

Wellll, we hope you are having a wonderful Easy Like Sunday.  We are in our napping mode for sure.

Tomorrow..... Last day of the 30 in 30......

Day 28 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Percy

Percy is also from Jan's Funny Farm.... Isn't he a handsome fellow.  Yesterday we had Rusty. Rusty is a beautiful fellow and he was commenting on how beautiful he found himself. So, HH thought she better quick paint one of the other kitties from Jan's Funny Farm, so Rusty's head didn't get too large as Jan said it might.

So... for your viewing pleasure... here's Percy in all his multi-colored wonder.  His colors blend so well together... Very beautiful ... Be sure to drop by his blog and see some of the other pictures of him.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend all.  Have a great time whatever you decide to do.

Day 27 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Rusty

Day 27.... can you believe it? Knuckles and I are getting excited.  We're gonna have a celebration when HH hits 30 Paintings in 30 Days.  That's for sure.  It'll be great. She'll be able to pet us without getting paint all stuck in our furs.. And she won't fall asleep in the middle of our conversations either.

Seriously... it's been a wonderful month, cuz we have lots more kitties to look at now.

Today... let me introduce you to Rusty from Jan's Funny Farm...  At first HH painted him too light cuz she didn't read Miss Jan's email carefully.  In the email she said that there was a second photo attached, cuz the first one was a bit washed out.  Well .... Rusty is his name... duh.... should be rust colored, right?  So he was blond at first, but HH put some rust in his fur too.

Such beautiful furs on this one.  HH had a great time painting him.

TGIF everybody...

Have a great weekend.

hugs, Bugsy

Day 26 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Truffle

Guess who's sister this is.... ?  Never guess...?  Of course you know that this is Truffle, sister of Brulee from Sweet Purrfections  Just like Brulee, she has fur and fluff everywhere... Beautiful to look at and beautiful to paint. 

Have you been over to visit their blog?  If not get on over there and see all the wonderful photos of the two girls who are pure confection.

It was such a pleasure to paint them and I'm catching onto this long hair cat fur painting.  Very fun.

Bugsy and Knuckles said that since it's Thankful Thursday, to thank you all for participating. We are approaching the end of the challenge and wanted to pause a moment to let you know that your comments and your photos have been greatly appreciated.

Have a great day...

hugs, Bugsy, Knuckles and HH

Also... there's a need in Michigan this weekend.  Please share this story with others who might help.

The HSHV Animal Cruelty and Rescue Team brought in 88 cats yesterday from horrendous conditions in a home in Ypsilanti Township. The cats came in sick, malnourished and flea-infested and are currently under medical treatment. Everyone is now safe and getting outstanding care, though not yet ready for adoption. But we desperately need families who want and have the means to become pet parents to come to HSHV this weekend. Getting our current feline residents into their forever homes more quickly will help free up space and time so we can keep extra focus on giving our cruelty case cats what they need and deserve to thrive. Friday through Sunday, September 27 – 29, all adult cats over the age of 5-months-old will be eligible for a Free adoption.

For those people who aren’t ready to adopt and still want to help, you can make a donation to help pay for medical treatment or bring us an item off of our wish list.

Day 25 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Zoey

Bugsy and Knuckles here:  We both wanted to introduce the lovely Miss Zoey today, so we are doing it together.  She's from The Island Cats too, you know,  over there with Wally and Ernie... If you didn't go over to visit them when their picture were up, stop over today and see what they've got going.

It's Wordless Wednesday, so we're gonna keep the words to a minimum today.  HH asked us to tell you that she loved painting little Zoey... Beautiful furs as you can see....

Thanks to the Island Cats for participating.

If you'd like to see other cat portraits for 30 in 30... go here...

Have a great day...

Day 24 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Faraday

Bugsy here:  My turn to introduce the character in the painting today.

This is Faraday. He's from A Tonk's Tail err...Tale blog.  He is just about the sleekest cat we've ever seen.  His fur is beautiful.  On his blog it says that he is a purebred Platinum Mink Tonkinese boy who they got from a breeder who also places Tonks who have been abandoned and need to be re-homed.

His momma said, "Faraday is a squally attention-grabber, in case you can't tell."  He's our kinda guy.  We don't squall but we do like to grab attention and are wondering if he might come over and show us some of his tricks.

Anyway, HH said she had a great time painting him today.   If you don't know Faraday and his siblings, go on over and introduce yourselves....

Oh... and ... don't forget about Toona Tuesday.  HH will be at the studio all day painting the other kitties and Knuckles got his paws on the can opener... so come on over.

Have a great day.

hugs, Bugsy

Day 23 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Abstract Cat 5

Saturday, I drew out three more kitties and because I did all that, I forgot to paint them yesterday. I had the best plans for getting ahead. .. Just remembered doing work and kitties, .. so today we have this little guy. I did paint him yesterday.  I love that he's so flexible... Something that I aspire to... Hope you enjoy him.

We're into the home stretch now. I'm really enjoying all the painting and will have someone from the group you sent into me for tomorrow.

Have a great day... The boys are into the countdown with only 7 more cats to go.

Day 20 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Darby

It's Day 20 already and this is Darby. I know she looks like a gigantic cat from this portrait but she's just a little thing, weighing in at 5 pounds. It was fun to paint her this close up.

Many of you may know her. She's from Cats at Wildcat Woods.  If you didn't drop by and say hi to all the cats over there when I posted Georgie's painting a while back, drop by today and enjoy.

The weekend is almost here and HH will be painting night and day. If 'n she leaves the computer on for us we'll be talking to you.  So stop by if you're around, cuz we know she'll be posting pictures everyday.

Day 19 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Calista Jo - Work in Progress

So, Bugsy got to introduce Fiona the other day. So, it seems only right that I get to introduce Calista Jo. She's from The Cat on my Head blog too.  HH told me that they have a lot of pretty cats over there and she's right.  Anyway, Calista Jo has furs of many different colors And her furs are giving HH fits.  And her eyes too.  So Calista Jo is what is known as a work in progress.  HH will work on her some more and we'll show her to you again soon.  We hope.....  
 So, here she is in her almost-done state and she is Cat 19... Anyway, if you haven't been over to see them at The Cat on my Head, why not....? You've had two tries at it with Madison and Fiona ... and here's your third.  Go over and look around and say hi to them.

Day 18 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Abstract Cat 5

Something a little different today.  A couple people have been asking me when I was going to make some more abstract cats.  Well, I decided to mix things up a bit and paint one for today.  This one is 6" by 6" and is on 140-pound watercolor paper. I use acrylic glazes for this. And I frame them with little black frames. I put up two others of this series at the beginning of the month.

Today is Wordless Wednesday, and I've already used up too many words.  Have a great day.

To see more of the cats of 30 in 30.... go to Lou Belcher Art

Day 17 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days... Angel Inka

Angel Inka is Day 17..... It's Tuesday already... it seems I'm losing track of time. I'm in a whirlwind of paint and having fun with all these cats visiting me.  I stare at them to capture their special look.  Inka and I had a great time smearing some paint around. She's a beautiful cat. I thoroughly enjoyed painting her.

We hope you have been to Clooney's Num-Num Fund blog before, because that's where Inka was from until she went to the bridge in 2009.  It was such a pleasure to paint her, I hope you'll stop by their blog and learn about her.

Hope you have a great day.

hugs, HH

OOOOHHHHH.... I almost forgot... it's Toona Tuesday and the boys want me to remind you to stop by... they're ready to share.

Day 16 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Maxwell

HH painted Maxwell on Sunday and guess he was getting his Easy Like Sunday on while she painted.  Bugsy and Knuckles slept right through it, too.  Maxwell's mom sent a couple of pictures to choose from. One of them was with him leaning over a ledge with his eyes crossed.  Someday HH will try that one, but she wasn't sure she could pull it off as well as he did, so she chose this more traditional pose.

Maxwell is a beauty and he's from A Tonk's Tail err... Tale   If you don't know them, swing on by to say hello.

If you'd like to see some of the other cats portraits, stop by Lou Belcher Art

The Results:  Yesterday there were six suggestions for the name of Day 15 kitty.... they were: Panther, Onyx, Velvet, Elvis, Extra, and Midnight.  After a random drawing..... The Name of the Day 15 Kitty is ELVIS. Thanks to those who participated.   

Hope you all have a wonderful day....

Day 15 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - ????

Bugsy here..... This is the 15th cat in the 30 in 30 challenge... He's different than the rest. He's from HH's imagination. She knew there would come a day in this month when she didn't have one of your cats to display. She prepared for just such a day by painting an extra cat...  Problem is: he has no name. So it's up to you to name him. Please leave whatever name you see fit in the comment section and we'll have a drawing for his name tomorrow.....

It's easy like Sunday. You'll notice that we are getting our easy on while you work away at naming this cat.

Have a great day everyone. And if'n you want to see the other cats in the series, stop by HH's gallery. Or if you want to see what the other artists from the challenge are doing, Stop by Leslie Saeta's blog.

In any case... have a good one.

Day 14 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Fioma

Hi ... Bugsy Here. I told HH that I wanted to give the introduction today, and she said I could when I told her that I think that Fiona is just beautiful.  What wonderful fur.... She is every shade of gray there is.  Knuckles liked her picture too....

Fiona is from The Cat on My Head  blog. I hope you dropped by over there when Madison was featured.  If you didn't.... get going and click here to go see them. There are birthdays going on over there on the 17th, so you don't want to miss that.

Anyhooooooooo.... I think that's all for me.... Here's HH.

HH Here... just wanted to say what a delight it was to paint Fiona.  As Bugsy said, she has beautiful fur in all those shades of gray and her face is so symmetrical... We had a nice time getting her on canvas.

I've been home from the studio all day today.... brought my paints with me.  Having a couple days with the boys while I work on a book I'm writing for November.

Have a great weekend everybody... If you're interested is seeing all the cats, go here...

Day 13 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Wally

Heeeeeeeeeere's Wally..... The boys are big fans of Wally and Ernie, so they were thrilled the other day to see Ernie on their blog and now Wally... They are beside themselves.....

It is always such a pleasure to paint Wally. He just about jumps off the page at me as I feel that humorous side of him wanting to take over.  Wally is another of The Island Cats.  If you don't know Wally and Ernie and their sister Zoey... you gotta stop by their blog..

Just a little aside.  I went to the Verizon store today... my phone finally gave up.  As one guy was configuring my new phone, I chatted with the other guy.  He saw some paint on my hands and asked me what I was painting. When I said, "Cats." He got a look of horror on his face.  I guess he thought I meant literally....

Well... I hope you all have a great day and have wonderful plans for the weekend. Don't forget to stop by. I'll have cats for you on Saturday and Sunday too.

hugs, Bugsy, Knuckles and HH

Day 12 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Allie

We're adding more glam to the blog today.  Today's star is Allie from A Tonk's Tail...err, Tale. What a beauty she is and how fun to paint.  In one of the shots her mom sent in, it showed her paw with bright pink polish on her nails and I'm told she has bling on her collar, but I couldn't see it to replicate it here.  I was fascinated by this pose and her eyes, however, so I didn't get to show you her nails.  But, stop by their blog and you'll get a little look at them.

Anyway, It was great fun painting Allie and I hope you drop by and tell her how pretty she is.

Allie is Day 12 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days.  If you'd like to see the others, drop by my art gallery. They are all there. Just click on any one of them to biggify.

As it's Thankful Thursday, let me say that I'm thankful for all the wonderful reference photos I have for the painting challenge.  Thanks everyone.

Have a great day.

Day 11 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Georgie

Today's portrait is Georgie of Cats of Wildcat Woods  It was such a pleasure to paint her. That white fur is a challenge and I was especially careful to try to capture her delicate features. If you haven't been over to the Cats of Wildcat Woods blog, be sure to take this opportunity to stop by.  There are plenty of cats to meet over there.  It's a private feral cat sanctuary and each cat is as beautiful as the next.  I thoroughly enjoyed painting Georgie.

If you're interested in seeing the first 10 cats in the 30 Paintings in 30 Days series, you can go to my gallery and see them all.

Have a great day everybudy.

Day 10 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Ernie

Wow... it's Day 10 already. We can't believe that a third of the challenge is behind us... well behind HH, that is.  She has kept to the task at hand throughout the month, and yesterday she even painted two paintings.  This one of our pal Ernie and another of cows and Queen Anne's Lace in a field.

Without further ado, let us present Ernie of The Island Cats.  The motto at their blog is, Every cat wants to be an island cat. Ever since we first saw their blog, we have wondered what it would be like to be an island cat and to live with lovely Zoey, and the witty Wally and Ernie.  All three sent in their photos, so you're going to meet them all.  Today... we have the indomitable Ernie. If you haven't met Ernie, Wally and Zoey before, visit their blog and get to know them. 

If you'd like to see the artwork from all ten days, go here... Lou Belcher Art Just  click on any one of them for a bigger view.

Today is Toooona Tuesday everybuddy... We're not neglecting that over here just cuz HH is painting.  Come on over.

Day 8 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days ... Madison

 We are so pleased to have Madison as our guest portrait today.  HH worked on him at the studio yesterday and when we saw him, we were thrilled.  Look how white and beautiful his fur is.  Madison is from The Cat on My Head blog. He is an Angel now and that's all the more reason to paint a portrait of him.

HH really enjoyed painting him and hopes you like him too.  If you're not familiar with The Cat on My Head blog,  head on over there and introduce yourselves.  

Hope you all have a great Sunday... Remember to take it Easy Like Sunday today.

Day 7 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days - Maestro

Maestro is a very wonderful cat He is about to  turn 19. His gotcha day was in November of 1994, but his birthday was two months earlier on 9/22/94.  So, it's wonderful to commemorate his birthday and gotcha by capturing him on canvas.

Maestro is, of course, from the Random Felines. It's one active place with kitties coming and going all the time.  Be sure to stop by and get to know them if you don't know them already.  Thanks to Jeanne for sending in the pictures of Maestro...  It was a pleasure to paint him.

Wishing all of you a great weekend....

Day 6 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days

Knuckles here:.... Holy Skeeerdy Cat.....  I'm staying in my office today.  You wanna know why?  I'll tell ya.... Noodles's mom gave HH this can... it's full of air and has a motion detector on it.  When someone (or some cat) walks by it and crosses the beam of the motion detector, it hisses and sprays air at ya.  You know where HH put it... on the kitchen counter and the beam goes across the main area we patrol everyday.  So... believe me when I say, Holy Skeeerdy Cat....  The first time that thing went off, I flew through the pass through and landed clear in the next room... Don't have to tell me twice. I'm staying off the counters... that's for sure.  The only funny thing about it is HH has been caught by the beam three times and we love to watch her jump when that monster surprises her. So that's why I'm in the office.... But, here's HH.... to tell you about today's painting.

Thanks Knuckles... Eve Wheeler is a painter and photographer friend who I met on Twitter. Occasionally, she sends me great photos of cats to paint.  This guy is one of those fantastic photos.  Had a blast painting him/her. If you'd like to see some of Eve's paintings, drop by her blog at  You'll enjoy the visit.

Thanks again to Eve for loaning me the photo.

Have a great day everybody... and a great start to the weekend.

Day 5: 30 Paintings in 30 Days - June Buggie

I'm sure many of you know who this is.  It's June Buggie-- the nemesis of Rumpy Dog.  If you don't know them, click here and visit their blog... Rumpy sent me two pictures, but I couldn't get a good fix on his eyes from either of them.  So, I snuck on line and found another picture that gave me just what I was looking for without having to make Rumpy get up nose to nose with Buggie to describe his eyes..

It was fun to paint him.  I love the subtle colors of yellow and white cats.  Hope you all enjoy. It's Thankful Thursday and I'm thankful Rumpy sent in Buggie's picture.

Day 4 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days: EVIE

Knuckles here... It's day 4 of the Great Painting Adventure or whatever it's called....  and Bugsy and I would like to report that things are going along smoothly.... no missed meals... no missed treats.... all toys accounted for.  HH (that's Lou to you humans) is not acting like a crazy woman.  And she is painting up a storm.  We just thought you might be wondering if'n we were doing okay.  Thanks for asking... we are doing fine.  Now here's HH to tell you a little about the intruder lovely kitty she painted for today. 

hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles

Thanks boys!!  Today is Day 4 and I'm pleased to tell you that today's kitty is a local one.  Here name is Evie and she's the kitty of Curtis,  who lives here in Florida too.  Actually, it may be the kitty of Franci too. I'm not sure about that.

Anyway, I had a great time painting her.  How many colors of fur can one cat have?  But I persevered very slowly and hope that I captured her.  She's a beautiful cat.  I'm sorry to say she doesn't have her own blog for me to send you to, but you're welcome to leave a comment for her here.

Thanks to Curtis for being so generous as to agree to share her photo with me.  Have a great day guys...

hugs, HH (Lou)

Day 3 ... Abby from MANXMNEWS

 HH here...

Here's a very special portrait today.  This is the beautiful Angel Abby from MANXMNEWS.  When Debra, her human, wrote to me asking for me to paint her, she said about her Abby: "Abby was a very sassy girl. Very type A personality. She was the queen of the house and she was my beloved heart and soul kitty."

It touched our hearts, so I decided to paint her right away. When I came home from the studio today, Knuckles decided he needed to inspect and he put his seal of approval on Abby.

If you want to keep track of all the 30 in 30 kitties, you'll find them here.. Lou Belcher Art

Have a great day...
