Welcome to What's on Your Wall Wednesday with our gracious hostess Barb at Grits and Glamour. Please be sure to stop by her blog to see her beautiful home and to find a list of participants! This week, instead of my plates, I would like to share with you one of my favorite artists.
No, not this artist...although he truly is my favorite! And this is my favorite painting, Vincent Van Gogh's Bedroom in Arles!! I love the way Van Gogh paints! I have this one on my wall.
Meet Pete the Cat!! Do you see him?? Curled up on Van Gogh's bed??? lol Isn't he cute?? This is one of the signed Pete the Cat prints that I have in my living room. They were created by an artist named James Dean...no, not that James Dean...! He is a very creative Georgia artist who has quite an imagination. My Van Gogh's Bedroom Pete is just one in a series which finds Pete in quite a few paintings by the masters. Of course, I chose the frenchy ones!
You must have seen this famous painting Le Chat Noir (The Black Cat) by Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen. This one is hanging in my hall, by the way!
And here is the James Dean version starring Pete! It's called Chat Blue and I love the colors! He hangs out with my Van Gogh's Bedroom Pete!
And this is my first Pete. I bought it in a little shop in Madison, Georgia, about 8 years ago. This is the one that got me started! Don't you love Pete? If you would like more information about him, or would like to take a peek at some of the other Petes, just go to Pete the Cat and enjoy!
