“Tuxedo Cat”


I love the way this little kitty looks you right in the eye! ~ Susan Tschantz Renaissance Art Gallery Artist.


Great Show! ~guest Comment


“Kitty III”


Warm and inviting ~ Guest comment



“Miniature Sunflowers” (sold)


"I think it is the visual impact that the sunflowers have from across the room. I love the cats, especially the one where the tuxedo is facing forward, but the visual draw of the sunny flowers does grab the eye. A number of people commented on that and stopped to look closer". ~ Susan Tschantz Renaissance Art Gallery artist
