The curiosity of the cat has him standing, staring at a art studio door with something great going on behind it. The colorful door has the word ART on the glass. Vibrant and brilliant colors fill this acrylic painting on board. I see no scratches, holes or restorations on this painting. Signed by the artist center right, Capra 2014. The painting measures 10 inches wide and 14 inches tall. It is mounted free floating in a gold shadow box frame. The frame looks great but does have some small wear at corners and one area of tiny surface scratches under the gold on the top left of the frame. I took a photo. It is hardly noticeable but want to point it out for the mint perfectionist. The frame measures 14-1/2 inches wide and 17-1/2 inches tall.

“I consider myself to be a colorist, using recognizable objects and distorting them with vibrant lush colorful interaction. I have been heavily influenced by Kandinsky, Dali, Miro and of course the Impressionists. My works start as a memorable experience and as it progresses the work creates its own reality, almost painting itself.”
