He Is Back - Blue Cat Art

He Is Back - Blue Cat Art by Dora Hathazi Mendes.



Cats often disappear, often for days or even weeks, and if we are lucky, they come back to us, or to their food bowl. 
They come back with some new injuries, or some awards, normally they don´t show any regret, because they caused us several sleepless nights. They just appear suddenly, and continue where they left. 

Recently I had the pleasure, and also the emotional farewell from one of my treasured cat art of mine, on of my best sellers titled The Blue Cat With Goldfish was sold, and I was thinking so much about him, I imagined, how would be, if my Blue Cat would just suddenly appear on my door step. And the new Blue Cat painting was born. A whimsical cat painting with a stained glass window, checkered floor, and philodendron leaves. The ecoline painting is the part of the Cats of Karavella Collection. I hope you will like it!

Peek A Boo Siamese Cat

Peek A Boo Siamese Cat. Watercolor painting by Dora Hathazi Mendes, from the Cats of Karavella Collection.


Recently I started to experiment with my new White Nights watercolor set, and this Siamese cat painting is one of the result, I am really pleased with. This painting in fact is not following the Style of the Cats of Karavella Collection, because for those I normally use Ecoline brilliant liquid watercolor, and has a different way of appreciating cats decorating the background with Art Deco motifs, and so on. This artwork more realistic with its lush green leaves, and I had great pleasure to create it.

"Japanese goldfish 
With your gossamer tail, 
You are the loveliest creature

Put your tongue back in

And go away. 
I know exactly what you are thinking."

Black Cat with Floral Motif of Art Nouveau - Cat Art

Black Cat with Floral Motif of Art Nouveau by Dora Hathazi Mendes, from the Cats of Karavella Collection.

There is one style with I fell in love at first sight, and it is called Art Nouveau. Was a very short lived, but highly creative movement, and I adore every aspect of it. The curved ornamental designs inspired by nature, the strong contours, the paintings of Mucha, the architecture, the dreamlike, otherworldly feel.  On my cat paintings, I often incorporate Art Nouveau elements, or simply get inspired by this decorative style.

My painting titled Black Cat of Floral Motif of Art Nouveau is one of best example for my passion to this unique style. An elegant cat painting which incorporates the black cat theme and decoration elements of Belgian Art Nouveau, also called Secession, or Jugendstil from the Turn of the Century. The Cat with the necklace is beautifully framed with ornaments of black organic lines, white mosaic, and gold flowers, in front of the warm red colour background.

Silver Tabby with Mandala - Cat Art

Silver Tabby with Mandala, cat painting by Dora Hathazi Mendes, from the Cats of Karavella Collection.


A mandala is a symbol both spiritual, and ritual in Indian religions, representing the microcosms of the universe, symbolising unity and harmony, and often used for an aid to meditation.

The smallest Feline is a masterpiece says the quote from Leonardo da Vinci. Just look into the eyes of a Cat, and listen the purring as chanting, this Divine Creature will help you experience both. See the Universe in her eyes, and probably your Cat will be your best Buddhist teacher, to show you how to meditate, how to obtain peace in your world. 

On my cat painting a silver coloured, elegantly striped, sophisticated tabby cat sitting in front of blue background with a mandala, surrounded with a geometric, stained glass style yellow frame as decorative element.

Legend of the Siamese - Cat Art

Legend of the Siamese, Cat Art by Dora Hathazi Mendes, from the Cats of Karavella Collection.

Once upon a time, an Eastern princess of Siam went to her daily bath to a lake. As usual, she was accompanied by her favourite cat, a Siamese. Because she was worrying for losing her ring, she placed it into the tail of the cat. The cat bended his tail for preventing the ring to fall off, and gradually over the years the tail of the Siamese Cat became with a permanent kink.

Legend of the Siamese - Cat painting by Dora Hathazi Mendes


By the tale the Siamese cats were highly appreciated for their kinked tail, but today considered as a fault of the breed. On my whimsical painting I used freely the attributes of the Siamese, because one of their uniqueness is the sky blue eyes, and point coloration. Other eye colours are more typical for Orient Cats which breed practically have Siamese body and soul with different fur pattern and eye colour. My siamese cats have yellow eyes, green striped fur, golden dotted tails, and they are sitting graciously front of red background, and surrounded by a hand painted frame in Art Deco style.

Cheer Up My Friend, Cat Art by Dora Hathazi Mendes from the Cats of Karavella Collection.

I made this rainbow inspired cat painting, before I knew that later on I will have special significance to this beautiful natural phenomena, as I didn’t know that one day I will have a rainbow child. I experienced that very heavy storm, and long pouring rain to have my sunshine, so this cheerful painting always will have a special part in my heart.
