Cats After van Gogh Feline Votive

Cats After van Gogh Feline Votive

This glass votive is etched by hand and finished with a clear label I printed including the four oil pastel paintings from my set “Cats After van Gogh”. It’s made from a repurposed glass jelly jar 3.5″ tall x 3″ wide 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 of four individual paintings on a purchased clear vinyl label and burnished it onto the vase. The curved glass areas are painted with turquoise permanent alcohol ink.


I was so taken by the exhibit “Van Gogh Close Up” that I began visualizing sketches of my cats and other things in techniques and colors that van Gogh may have used, the thick impasto of the paint, the contrasting outlines of figures and bright bold non-objective colors The first of these was “Two Cats After van Gogh”, using oil pastel to create the layered impasto and texture.

Search each of the images by title to find them as prints, greeting cards, gift bags and so many other gift items.
