Stumbled across some cheap "Black" canvases at Michaels so I picked up a few.  Looking at them told me that they screamed for Pop Art which I never did; it's a fra, far cry from what I typically do. Anyway, I decided to give it shot. Hope you like it.











Edited to add: four panels that have words in them. The 2nd panel from the top (right side) says: "Life without cats...I don't think so!"
The third panel from the top (left side) says: "The Earth without ART would be...EH!" And the last panel on the bottom left says "Life is a song...so swing it!" The word "love" is easily visible in the next to last panel left side. Ooops, forgot one more panel...a sign on the fence (bottom row) says "What's goin' on"? Appropriate for the nosy cats.

Oh so sorry, I meant to add that info in but my sister called and an hour later...I forgot! 

It is painted on 18 by 24 canvas in acrylic.  Thanks for liking it; I was worried how it would be received because I don't generally paint this kind of painting. I usually do more serious stuff.  The closest I cam to this kind of work was when I did the "The Walking Dead" painting a while back.
