Art is subjective. What I like, you might hate, which is fine. I like this cat painting. That said, I like most cat paintings! This one is by Rubina Latif. It was pinned on Pinterest and Rubina has kindly agreed to allow me to publish it here. She has a blog, where you can see more of her work.
What do I like about it? Colour is the answer and the fact that it is a bit “funky”. I tend to prefer images that are not conventional or not straight representations. In the days before photography there was a reason to paint a cat or person as a likeness and as a record. Nowadays photography does that job far better so painting and drawings should bring something else to the easel.
For me, this painting “works”. The cat has some character too. Do you see a character for this cat? Be honest 😉
There is a page on cats in paintings where you can see mainly historical depictions of cats in paintings.
