Cat Art Series – Hunter in Camouflage

In my Cat Art Series, I would like to introduce you my cat paintings from the Cats of Karavella Collection.

I made this whimsical cat painting while I was expecting our first child. But this time I already knew, that we were going to have a baby boy.

I always thought that cats are feminine animals, because of their grace and beauty, but that time  I wanted to create something which put an effect more on the masculine side of these gorgeous felines, and as well something which goes well with blue and fit better in the room of a boy!

So, the Hunter in Camouflage was born and took place in my boy´s room as decoration, waiting for his arrival.

Cats are excellent hunters, born with the instinct of chasing and catching a prey. They are great opportunist as well, and they rarely miss a chance to grab an extra titbit, or catch a bird, or rodent, can be for hunger, but also only for the sake of hunting, and sheer excitement. The depictions of cat as thieves, normally displays the stealth, patience and quicksilver action which are the skills not only of a thief, but also of a hunter which perfected by long practice.
