'Jamaican Style Grumpy Cat' ~ by BDMiller

A Little While Back ..

I created a post called Stuck In The Rain - Blind Contour Drawing. It was a drawing about a cat we saw while on holiday in Jamaica and on an excursion for the day. I saw the picture today, and thought this would be an awesome subject for my next digital photo rendering. If only this poor can knew how much I have been drawing, painting and writing about him or her. 'Jamaican Style Grumpy Cat' is almost famous now :-P .. Thanks to me. haha.

Here Is A Little Of That Post ..

Jamaica 2014 - I call it 'Stuck In The Rain'

Poor cat was pissed off because it got stuck in a downpour with little to nowhere to take shelter except for some thinly layered foliage. Of course she was not happy I was documenting an obvious low point in her day.

No Worries Though ..

The our friendly kitty soon dried off when the sun reappeared. She found a nice warm spot on a piece of smooth concrete, where I am sure she napped the afternoon away.

Such a cute cat ..

Appeared to be well fed, given her healthy weight. There was a place very close to this spot where they were cooking jerk chicken and other BBQ for the tourists. Lots of scraps and handouts to be had!

So The Inspiration For More Creativity Continues ..

I tweaked this photo into a more artistic piece, rather than a wet cat soaked by the rain. If anything, my grumpy cat artistic version looks to be a bit happier living in her swirls of color. I have to say it looks a bit more Jamaican too! At least more colorful which much of Jamaicans art pieces exhibit. Hope You find this piece both a little mystical and mysterious, as well as unique and festive. :-D

A bit too much color???

The Framed Version ..


Well, off to do something great! Hope you are too!!!

About Me ~ The Artist

My art work incorporates a wide variety of subject matter, including landscape, seascape, cityscape, and still life images. My works are the product of a continuing process of exploration through which I seek to portray personal and visionary interpretations of my surroundings. My paintings are impressions of places and events from everyday life, an interpretation of my imagination, and personal responses to what I see and feel on a daily basis. More recently I have invested generous amounts of time into my landscape painting. I am surrounded by natural and man made beauty, which inherently presents itself in the tri-state area, and almost demands that I paint it.

Not everything is art. Art is not everything, but it comes close. Art is everywhere and all the time. Art makes you experience the beauty of the world, the people in it, and the places we call home. Art itself is so influential that it can tell stories, show feelings, and express passion or fury. Art exists in addition to language; expression of sensations and thoughts, revealing a way of thinking too subtle and delicate for words.

For me art requires love, honesty and perseverance. In return, it reveals some personal, non-analyzable, and creative untamed passion. For the public, art with its magnificent beauty, improves mood and health and builds better human beings and communities. It engages the intellect, softens the heart, strengthens the soul and frees the spirit.

It was a bit grumpy after having endured the torrential downpour. I thought his face, in the original picture, look a bit grumpy or pissed. Maybe he wasn't at all :-)


Happy Day to you as well.

@bdmillergallery You are welcome. Cats look like that I love it. ❤️

When I saw the colors and technique, I thought as much. As I scrolled and read your texts, lo and behold, it was 'Jamaicsn Style'. This is a beautiful piece.
