Scout's on Watch Oil Painting by KneeDeepOriginals

Nothing gets past a cat! They are so observant, ever on the alert for movement, comings and goings, the footsteps of friends and strangers, the sound of a can opener. And Scout is no different... she sees it all and takes it all in, taking action if action is required. This is a 12 x 16 oil on canvas of a relaxed but very observant cat... which they need to be when Halloween rolls around. And they need to be INSIDE since too many bad things have happened to cats on Halloween.
I will donate 10% of the sale of this painting to my local animal rescue group, Animal Rescue of Stokes County, as listed in my description in my Etsy shop.

Halloween Dark Reaper Cat 8x10 Print by TaraFlyPhotos

The majority of my works involve cats, with black cats taking preference; however I wanted to create a Halloween-specific design that wasn't the stereotypical "scaredy cat on a fence" or "broom accessory". LOL The Dark Reaper is a powerful force to be reckoned with, in his own right. :)

Using Epson's Velvet Fine Art paper and archival pigment ink, I've printed high quality reproductions of my original acrylic painting. The printed surface measures 8"x10" with a slight white border.

I've been giving a percentage of sales to my local humane society. I was able to donate $25.00 to them last month. I've decided to take a more active role with Charity of the Month, so 10% of "Dark Reaper" sales will go towards EFA monthly charities.
