I painted allot of cats early on in my career. These cats were 2006 and 2008. The first cat I painted, was the cause of a stigma that took me two years to shake off. At one point, people were calling me ‘The Cat Artist’. All I painted was cats. Yes, I was giving in to demand, knowingly losing the battle to win the war. It almost cost me the war until I refused to paint cats. So people finally stopped asking for cats and the war was won. I release one or two pieces with cats every so often.
