"Belly Rub" acrylic cat painting by Jane Diamond

I just love the way cats roll onto their backs - as their way of letting us know they want

a belly rub. But also, when cats expose their bellies, it is the ultimate sign of trust. So

inspired by this cute pose, I painted this smiling tabby cat, belly up! And this painting

is based on my cat, Ms. Abbey.


Although - much to deep my sadness and heart break - Abbey passed away recently.

On September 26th 2011 - of natural causes due to old age (22 years) Her birthday is

next Monday - and while I am still coping with the loss of my fur baby - still adjusting to

her not being around and about in the house - I plan on doing more paintings of Abbey.

She was - and always will be - my 'mews' (muse ;) for my art. RIP in Eternal Catland


mediums used: watercolor paint and acylic paint
