Original Angel Cat Acrylic Folk Art Painting on Wood by Max Bailey

This is “Terence the Tomcat”. With his roguish good looks and feline charm, he is surely an angel, even if, at times, he may be thinking less than angelic thoughts.

Terence looks out from a rich warm background of browns blending into black, which gives the effect of Terence having just emerged from the darkness. He is painted in acrylic on solid poplar wood. I coated the painting with clear gloss varnish to give it depth, and to protect and enhance the color.

Angelicat and Angelifish, Original One-of-a-kind Cat and Fish Folk Art Angel Dolls by Max Bailey

Angelicat and Angelifish, Original One-of-a-kind Cat and Fish Folk Art Angel Dolls by Max BaileyEveryone who has or ever had a cat knows that all cats are angels. With her innocent and angelic expression, this petite white cat is adorable.

Angelicat and Angelifish, Original One-of-a-kind Cat and Fish Folk Art Angel Dolls by Max BaileyShe’s only 8 and 1/2 inches tall from ear to toe. She can sit on a chair (chair not included) or she can sit by herself. Her cute little curled tail will support her back in a sitting position, and her small size allows her to sit prettily in your favorite curio cabinet, or nestle in anywhere among your favorite collectibles. Sitting, she’s only 4 and 3/4 inches tall.

Angelicat and Angelifish, Original One-of-a-kind Cat and Fish Folk Art Angel Dolls by Max BaileyHer quilted wings have been attached separately and are painted with feathery blue detail.

Angelicat and Angelifish, Original One-of-a-kind Cat and Fish Folk Art Angel Dolls by Max BaileyHer faded blue apron sets off her lovely blue eyes. I painted a pattern of wavy water across the bottom of her apron just for her good friend Angelifish.

Angelicat and Angelifish, Original One-of-a-kind Cat and Fish Folk Art Angel Dolls by Max BaileyAngelifish is very colorfully painted and detailed in shades of blue and green, highlighted in yellow to give him that wet “fishy” look. He gazes up adoringly at Angelicat, and is suspended from her apron button with pearl cotton cord.

Angelicat and Angelifish, Original One-of-a-kind Cat and Fish Folk Art Angel Dolls by Max Bailey Angelifish is only 3 and 1/2 inches long. In addition to being Angelicat’s best friend, he makes a wonderful ornament for a small Christmas tree.

Angelicat and Angelifish, Original One-of-a-kind Cat and Fish Folk Art Angel Dolls by Max BaileyBoth Angelicat and Angelifish are signed and dated. From top to bottom and beginning to end, they are true one-of-a-kind original works of art.

Angelicat and Angelifish, Original One-of-a-kind Cat and Fish Folk Art Angel Dolls by Max BaileyI made my own patterns for Angelicat (and her apron) and sculpted Angelifish from paper clay without using a mold. I painted them both (my favorite part of the process) with acrylic paints, and sealed them with matte varnish to protect them.
