Ship's Cat by Keithspangle Ship's Cat by Keithspangle
Oil on canvas: 16" X 20"
This is an idea for a painting that I decided to finish and show. I like the idea better than the painting.
music:www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9xHMM…
11/11/15: I have decided to "enable" this image for printing.  I had intended to do a second version of this painting that corrects its mistakes, but I cannot be sure when the second painting will be finished.  
1/19/16 I finished the revised and (hopefully) improved version of this painting:  fav.me/d9omhig   I will leave this version up for now.

It would be nice, if the cat would be bloating in the air in strange position :-)

I like this though, very Star Trek with artificial gravity, but I like more of those ships that don't have gravity or have gravity by rolling, because there will be areas where there is no gravity, or the gravity is less prominent. It would give a picture very space like punch, when things are floating inside the space ship!
Expecting to see more Space cats ;-)

Thank you!  I decided to keep it simple and just illustrate the IDEA of pets going along for the ride, as opposed to getting into what it will probably actually look like.  This allowed me to also place some everyday objects beside the cat...like a simple cozy home scene that is set in space: our new home.  I am thinking about more work a long this line of thought: kind of like illustrating 18th century sea travel, where the mechanics are well understood and commonplace.  The story shifts away from the technical details and the vastness of the surroundings and starts to focus on the travelers: their hopes, dreams and day to day lives.

They needed us to build the ships and open their cans of tuna.  We are the staff!

I got the impression with Gomer (who posed for this painting) that he wasn't watching for anything in particular.  Rather he was daydreaming about whatever it is that cats daydream about. :)

Can't imagine there'd be any rats aboard a ship like that, would there?

Read the description and I just have to say, I love this painting!
It makes me think of someone in Star Trek having a pet cat.

I can see Picard with a cat....not so sure about Kirk, although Spock would probably have one.

Exactly. Logical beings like Data would have cats, of course. Cat Bullet Black

I had planned on doing a new version of the painting that corrected the mistakes of this one...the new version will be available as prints.  Shirtwascash is using this design for one of their t-shirts if that helps.
