The Cosmos Cat Project Has A Sponsor!

I received notice today that my design now has sponsorship! Sponsors provide "up front" money so that the Cat Care Society is able to purchase the cat forms for painting.  Sponsors also provide a small stipend for artist supplies, as well as one ticket for the artist to attend the auction night gala and dinner.  I am thrilled!

For the Cats

I've been a fan of Tails of the Painted Cats since they began 4 years ago.  It's a fundraiser where artists create designs to paint onto fiberglass cat forms, which are auctioned off to the highest bidder at a gala dinner event.  All proceeds benefit the Cat Care Society, a non-profit, no-kill shelter for lost kitties in the Denver area.

The cat forms come in two configurations, seated and standing. My design was submitted for a standing cat, although the TOPC Committee can modify that part of the design.

I always planned to enter a design but either missed the entry deadline or could not fit it into my schedule those first years.  I vowed this year would be different, and my design was accepted for a painted cat.  I have created this website to show the process of creating Cosmos Cat.
