Fine Art for Cat Lovers

Sometimes I plan to paint something and then Knor interferes. You know how cats are … πŸ™‚ The word “Knor” is pronounced with a hard k, like in “kitchen” and refers to the inner light spirit of felines.
So lets begin with one of Knor’s adventures, where she has decided to embark upon a tree. Yeah, we know the view is better from above and who knows if she catches glimpses of the heavens … and then she is desperately waiting for the fire brigade to come and rescue her:

Black Cat in Tree - fine art by Anne Vis

Quite endearing, don’t you think?

Anyway, there is nothing more soothing after a strenuous day at work, than coming home to a happy kitty eagerly awaiting your return:

In this painting a tuxedo cat allows for a quite official welcome πŸ™‚

Funny Fine Art Rooster Gifts

Do you love roosters? Aren’t they the prettiest birds with all those colorful feathers? I just created a new painting featuring a beautiful rooster and added it to several gift products and home design items as well. I’m showing some of them today.

Then a personalized phone case, which I thought would make a great gift for a self-employed professional or, with different texts, for anyone else:

Funny Cat Art

It’s #Caturday again, a great day to share the latest adventures of Knor, the cat. I must say, she had me in stitches for days. This time she made a makeshift diving suit all by herself: complete with the cover of an alarm clock and the shedded tail of a mermaid. Did you know that mermaids shed their skins, just like snakes do? I did not, but apparently Knor figured this out πŸ™‚
So after she made her diving suit, she managed to catapult herself into the pond. And before you know it, she was off playing with the koi fish. Cats are known to eat koi (they have highly sophisticated taste as you know), but today Knor was happy just to play:

Gone fishing ...
You may also take a look at Knor’s adventures from last week (also very funny).

#Caturday: Funny surreal cat art

Oftentimes I set out to paint something specific, and then suddenly the whole scene changes. Today I am featuring a fine art painting of a woman in a fitting room, trying on a new dress. Then all of a sudden all sorts of animals entered the scene. The culprit is a the cute little kitty on the left, as she is pushing the mirror with her little paw … and then: phew! Magic happens! Usually this is the realm of angel knors, the angel form of cats. They are known for their ability to change a scene in an instant and bring light where a situation seems hopeless. In this case the clever little cat Knor has managed to bring about change … just maybe not what was expected … Nevertheless: always good for a smile! πŸ™‚
The Fitting Room - fine art painting
Then a small sweet mouse came on … Although it’s usually not a great idea to have mice roaming the house, I personally think they are totally cute πŸ˜‰

Smell the Roses – fine art design gifts

It’s been a while, but I made a new painting in the series of floating flowers, this time with a slightly different painting technique. And you can now also find this art on products for your home or gifts. The first one is a pillow:

Of course you can transfer the painting to any other product that Zazzle offers on which it fits, but I added two more to help you get started: a floating flowers tote bag with your custom monogram (optional, or add other texts if you like):

And a wine label! I made it to give to your mother in law, but you can also customize it for any other occasion:

A big cheers to you!

Celebrating fall with a magical forest painting

Fall has such an abundance in beautiful colors and then, the forest is really a magical place. So I combined these two and made a new painting. Of course the curious cat Knor (“K” pronounced as in “kitchen”; the word “Knor” stands for the inner light and loving spirit of the cat beings) could not help herself and managed to sneak in πŸ™‚ Some people do have that special bond with their kitty and it’s always precious. In this case Knor is following the romantic couple in love, that is walking in a warm embrace a bit further down the forest path.

Walking the Cat - romantic fine art forest painting

I’ve previously painted some works with a similar theme that you may like. A girl with her knor in the forest:

Celebrating #Caturday with a new cat painting

You know how cats always like to be on top of things and enjoy having a nice view. Today I am featuring a new painting with two cats looking out of the window to enjoy the sunset over the water:
A room with a view 2
A colorful and happy painting. And as usual, some questions pop up. In the New Age movement the key question is “Who am I?”. However, the question that comes up here is: “Where am I?”. I always find that question a lot more interesting, for as long as you don’t know where you are, you are never going to find an answer to the question who you are. And the reason this question comes up in this painting, is the water. Are the cats in a houseboat? Or a beach house? Where are they? Is the water a lake? Or a river or canal? And what is it that catches their eye?
All in all a fantasy painting with a somewhat surreal aspect …

#Caturday: tuxedo cat in Italy

I personally find Italy one of the most inspiring places in the world. A stunningly beautiful landscape, lively people, the best kitchen in the world … I am not exaggerating, am I?
Anyway, I was working on a village scene when of course the cat Knor arrived … πŸ™‚ (For those of you who are not familiar with Knor: “k” is pronounced as in “kitchen” and the word knor stands for the inner light spirit of cat beings). She arrived in style: a tuxedo cat. And the lady in red is exploring the streetΒ  … as I seem to have developed a specific liking to red dresses. The painting is available on several products and with Zazzle’s new transfer tool (on the product pages) you can also transfer the design to any product that it fits on, as made by Zazzle.
The first product is a wine label with your custom texts:

The light shining through this lamp will create a beautiful warm atmosphere:

And shopping will be more fun with a colorful and artistic tote bag:
