Slowly layering watercolor in thin washes to build up color in this mutant goat piece. I’m in studio with the windows closed against the sallow smoke that’s rolling over Oakland from the fires just north of us.

I created this piece for a cheetah conservation fundraiser at Safari West. Please send good vibes out to the people and animals at @safariwest , the park is in the midst of the fires engulfing Santa Rosa
The west is on fire, I’m sending my love to Sonoma and Napa as they battle these terrible fires, so much has been lost already. Wishing safety for my friends and family in Santa Rosa and beyond 😢
The west has been burning all summer, from Washington down, out to Montana. These endless blue skies feel like a mockery as hills and homes alike burn. Longer, hotter summers have left us dry and brittle to the bone
Working on something cute today, a little raccoon family commission piece
I finished this mystic cat prince painting, it will be heading to LA for a charity art auction to support the good people and Kittens of @kittybungalow , a rescue group caring for cats in need and helping manage feral cat colonies. They took in many hurricane kitties and are a great group to donate to!

While gallery hopping around New Orleans on this rainy day I had a chance to view Lorna William’s fantastic show at @5pressgallery
Before heading to the opening of Loved To Death at @moderneden tonight (curated by the lovely Audra of @lovedtodeath ) I stopped by @15romolo for a pre-opening cocktail and a bit of drawing. I’m trying to finally finish this goat piece I started a few months ago!
Tomorrow night, Oct 6th, at @moderneden gallery in SF “Loved To Death” opens! The show is curated by @lovedtodeath , I’ll be at the opening, if you’re around the SF area come out and say hi! My bat painting will be available for sale through the gallery
A new little commission painting I finished this week, further ruminating on the cycle of life and death, the ceaseless shifts in our state of being. We too are a part of the same cycle that sees the green growth of fading summer rotting into the slumber of winter, waiting to seed new growth come spring
Studio Cat Dev hanging out with my ghost Cat painting before I pack it up to ship to @redtruckgallery in NOLA today for their upcoming Halloween show! If you’re in New Orleans around Halloween be sure to check out the show!
I adopted my kitty Dev 7 years ago from the @nycacc shelter back when I lived in NYC
I’ve made prints available of my Rescuers inspired painting “Treasure of the Devil’s Bayou” in my Society6 Shop at www.society6.com/caitlinhackettart (link in my profile)🖤💀💎
The Last Hunt, an ode to vanishing magic, may we all hold onto our sense of wonder in a world that can be full of sorrow. I have prints of this piece at www.society6.com/caitlinhackettart (link in my profile)
