In Afternoon Sun Feline Votive

In Afternoon Sun Feline Votive

This glass votive is etched by hand and finished with a clear label I printed from my sketch “In Afternoon Sun”. It’s made from a purchased shaped glass votive 3.25″ x 3.25″ and comes with an LED tea light. Price includes shipping.


I am temporarily out of this votive, but I’m making new ones. Each one is made of a different recycled container so the new one will be just about the same size, but completely unique. Please check back or send me a message if you’d like to know when I upload the new one.

I etched the inside of the vase to better diffuse the light from the candle, then printed the design on a purchased clear vinyl label and burnished it onto the vase.

Mimi enjoys her daily sunbath while Mewsette watches the birds from my studio window on the second floor.

One more experiment with this brush pen, partly just because it was there. I love it when the cats are partly lit by sunshine, and dramatically. Here it pours in the window from nearly directly above, just enough to highlight them where they are near the window but leaving the rest in silhouette.

I didn’t want to leave out their mahogany highlights, so I’ve added those. Because the second floor window looks right out into a maple tree from this angle, I wanted to catch the dappled and speckled effect with watercolors. Not sure how well I like the speckles, perhaps I’ll try a bigger brush next time to get bigger blotches.

“In Afternoon Sun” is also available as a greeting card and a print and as a gift bag. Search “In Afternoon Sun” to find all items with this image.
