This is a new fine art giclée print created from the original acrylic painting, “Herman the Blue Persian” by artist Max Bailey.
When Herman grows up, he plans to be a gentleman farmer.
He will oversee a huge catnip farm with lots of kitty employees who will tend to fields of fine-quality aromatic catnip plants. He will encourage his helpers to take frequent breaks to roll around in the catnip and hopefully be as silly as possible. He is aware that product testing is of the utmost importance.
This is an 8 x 10 inch image on 8 x 10 inch paper. This print was created using archival-quality pigment-based Epson UltraChrome ink and heavyweight 100% cotton archival-quality, acid-free, 300gsm weight fine art paper with a matte finish. It comes in an acid-free clear cello sleeve with an acid-free backing board, and is all ready to put in a standard size frame (frame not included).
The print of Herman the Blue Persian is available in our Ruffing’s Etsy art shop.
We are back online after a long disappearance and we have more cats in clothes! Max Bailey has been hard at work on a new line of anthropomorphic kitty cat paintings which we are turning into art prints. They are based on Max’s art doll characters. We have more original one-of-a-kind art dolls to post too. These are the first two prints we have, and they are available in our Ruffing’s Etsy art shop.
The first is Alice the White Cat. Alice’s little doll was especially made just for her by her favorite aunt. Alice calls her “Angela”. In a soft voice, Alice tells Angela all her secrets, and shares with her all her kitty dreams. Alice is very sweet and always cheerful, and she thinks her life is really quite nice. She’s glad to have Angela to share it with.
The next is Louisa the Himalayan cat. Louisa walks to the library at least once a week to get a new book to read. She’s read almost all of the novels in the library, and especially loves the classics. Louisa wants to be an author when she grows up. She feels there are too many stories about people, and not enough about kitties.
Both prints are 8 x 10 inch images on 8 x 10 inch paper. They were created from Max’s original acrylic paintings, reproduced using archival-quality pigment-based Epson UltraChrome ink and heavyweight 100% cotton archival-quality, acid-free, 300gsm weight fine art paper with a matte finish. Each one comes in an acid-free clear cello sleeve with an acid-free backing board, and is all ready to put in a standard size frame (frame not included).

I’ve decided to introduce mini versions of my prints. I’m not sure how long I’ll offer them, but they are currently available in our Ruffing’s Etsy shop.
These prints are made from my original acrylic paintings and are printed on nice heavy-weight, 100% cotton art paper, using archival-quality, pigment-based Epson inks. They are signed below the image in pencil, and they each come in a protective cello sleeve.
From top to bottom, they are “The Guardian”, “Laurence with Primroses and Daffodils”, and “Something Stirring”.
Here is a sneak peak at (from left to right) “Ginger and George“, “Crabby Alice and Ruthie“, and “Hedda and Hopper“, Max Bailey’s brand new one-of-a-kind original cat art dolls. We photographed them over the past two mornings, and they are very excited about making their Internet debut. We’ll be introducing them one at a time, to give each one due attention, in coming blog posts. I assure you… they can’t wait!
All they talk about is who looks the prettiest.
Elizabeth made us a new logo. It really needed some dolls! Much better now!
