Don't you just LOVE a cat in uniform?

O CANADA! That's how I felt when I was painting this handsome feline. Is he a hunk of burning cat love or what? I've always been a sucker for a man in uniform (I mean, who isn't?) but I have a special appreciation for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police when they're in full dress uniform. All that pressed red serge ... and brass ... and, sigh ... (excuse me while I have a cold shower).

I love this painting a lot (it's my favourite so far) and hope to do a few more animals wearing the world famous Mountie uniform. Maybe a moose? Or a bear? Can't wait to get started.

Meanwhile, a good friend of mine (Mr. Harry Sanderford) suggested I call this dashing dude "Cuddly Do-Right." I think the name fits ... what do you think?

By the way, I sincerely hope everyone had a terrific holiday. Mine was ... different! But OK! Glad to get back to normal – whatever the feck normal is. (Let me know if you have a clue.)

8"x10" original acrylic painting on stretched, gessoed canvas, varnished. Sides are painted black so no framing is needed. For more information visit my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/216694736/cat-in-mountie-uniform-original-acrylic?ref=shop_home_active_1

  1. Very cute! Do a husky! I bought one in Vancouver. I think I have a Bear Mountie too. Did you like that show 'Due South' with Paul Gross and Leslie Neilsen?

    Why was your holiday 'interesting'?

  2. One handsome dude! All credit to his make-up artist, of course.

  3. The only normal people are those you don't know very well.
    And yes, Cuddly Do Right seems fair. I would love to see a feline villian as well...

  4. Yep. Love a cat in a uniform.
    Happy New Year!!

  5. How about a horse in uniform riding a trained mountie lol?
    What is normal? Whatever feels comfortable to you at any given moment. If you are uncomfortable it's not a normal situation for you. That's my interpretation for what it's worth lol.

  6. Cuddly Do Right - hilarious!
    Happy New Year, Cathy.

  7. Cat people (including my wife and I) love cat art.
    the Ol'Buzzard

  8. I think your friend came up with a great name! Very fitting!

    Happy New Year!


How's it going, eh? It's SO good to hear from you. Tell me every darn thing...
